"Uncovering the Potential Transfer: Crystal Palace's Interest in Luton Star"


Nigeria striker Elijah Adebayo’s top form for Luton Town in the Premier League this season has ranked him as one of the underdog stories of the season in terms of goalscoring, with some valiant displays for the Hatters in their mesmerising campaign. And he could be afforded the chance to repeat that against next season even if Luton go down - with Crystal Palace and Bournemouth potentially interested, sources have exclusively told GIVEMESPORT.


Adebayo had a largely uninspiring career in the lower leagues until his move to Kenilworth Road, registering a career-best 10 goals in 25 league games in League Two for Walsall back in 2020/21. But at the age of 23, Luton took a gamble on him and it has certainly paid off. The 6ft 4in striker racked up 16 goals in their unsuccessful promotion bid back in 2021/22, and despite only grabbing seven goals in the Championship last season, his general hold-up play and athleticism allowed Luton’s other stars to shine as they were promoted at Wembley.


But it’s been this season where he has become a household name in English football. An impressive 10 goals in 24 Premier League games is a superb return for a striker undergoing his first campaign in top-flight football; and though it might not be enough to keep Luton from the drop, the striker has almost pulled off the impossible in keeping the Hatters up against the odds.


GIVEMESPORT sources have revealed that if Luton don't survive, Adebayo will have options at the end of the current season. With clubs coming up from the Championship - namely Leicester and Ipswich, followed by the play-off winners - taking a look, alongside Crystal Palace and Bournemouth, who are 'alerted' by how well he has done and the fact that he's likely to be available


Adebayo, who has been labelled as 'magic' by Rob Edwards, will be available for transfer at the right price if Luton are relegated, and he would offer a superb rotation option for Palace alongside Jean-Philippe Mateta and Odsonne Edouard; whilst if Dominic Solanke goes, Adebayo may try and step into the feet of the Cherries talisman.


Hitting double figures in his first top-flight season at the age of 26 is an incredible feat for the former Fulham man, and with better service next season, he could well beat that tally if he manages to stay fit - with his pure height over other players offering a different route at an advantage to the Eagles.


Elsewhere for Luton, Gabe Osho and Teden Mengi have massively impressed and will undoubtedly field interest, GIVEMESPORT sources have been informed - whilst the obvious departure at Kenilworth Road will be Ross Barkley, who has even had shouts for the England team due to his prowess in the centre of the park.
