Wolves transfer news: Gibbs-White has been top of Crystal Palace's list for weeks

Crystal Palace are reportedly still hoping to sign Morgan Gibbs-White from Wolves.

According to journalist Alan Nixon, the 22-year-old has been top of the Eagles’ list for weeks now.

Nixon was responding to a user on Twitter, who had asked what the priority was for Palace this at this point.

Someone had asked if Burnley star Dwight McNeil was on their radar.

But Gibbs-White is apparently their priority at the moment.

It remains to be seen if a bid will come in from the London club, but Gibbs-White has been featuring heavily for Wolves in pre-season so far.

The star has impressed out in Alicante, showing great link-up with the likes of Pedro Neto and Raul Jimenez.

He also wore the captain’s armband against Levante.

Wolves would ideally like to keep hold of Gibbs-White.

However if a bid comes in of around £30 million, then the club could be tempted to sell.

There have also been reports of interest from Everton recently.

Wanderers recently offered Gibbs-White a new contract following his return to the club after a fantastic loan spell with Sheffield United.

But he is yet to sign it, with his current deal expiring in the summer of 2024.

Crystal Palace to offer cash plus Christian Benteke as they eye Morgan Gibbs-White?

So it seems Palace are still looking to perhaps try and prise Gibbs-White away from Molineux.

Hopefully this ultimately won’t happen. Gibbs-White has been looking very sharp in pre-season so far.

Potentially he could be a key player for Bruno Lage this season.

It will be interesting to see if Palace try and tempt Wolves into a deal by offering Christian Benteke.

It was reported last week that Wolves were showing interest in the Belgium international following the decision to loan out Fabio Silva.
