Oliver Glasner keen on signing 19-year-old Welsh midfield sensation

Jordan James is a youth midfielder for Birmingham City, and Crystal Palace has stayed in contact with them in case a summer transfer happens.

According to The Sun, Crystal Palace are keen on signing Jordan James in the summer, having failed with a move in January. The 19-year-old Welsh midfield sensation has been in good form and could attract interest from some top-division sides, including a few from abroad, during the next window.

Crystal Palace want Jordan James
Crystal Palace are hoping to enter a new era in their club’s history after some recent changes. Veteran manager Roy Hodgson stepped down following an illness, although his job was on the line following some dreadful results.

Former Eintracht Frankfurt manager Oliver Glasner took over from the veteran and delivered a 3-0 win over Burnley on his first game. Palace are hoping for a new direction in the transfer window as well, as they could start focusing on bringing young prospects again like they did earlier with the transfers of Eberechi Eze and Michael Olise.\

They have already begun their process with the arrival of Adam Wharton from Blackburn Rovers on the January deadline. They might have wanted another young midfielder, with 19-year-old Welsh midfield sensation Jordan James also a reported target.

Crystal Palace reportedly failed with a move for James in January, as they wanted to sign the Birmingham City midfielder and then loan him back to the Blues. The Championship outfit deemed their offer as low, but the Eagles have stayed in touch and could plot a summer move.

Crystal Palace faces Atalanta competition for Jordan James
Crystal Palace are hopeful of opening a new dialogue with Birmingham City for 19-year-old Welsh midfield sensation Jordan James, although they face the competition of Atalanta. It is understood that the Italian outfit wanted him in January and could re-enter the race in the summer.

Atalanta certainly have the pull to get a good player out of England, but should someone like Palace also remain positive, the Premier League side might have a bigger chance. In any case, James is expected to leave Birmingham City in the summer, as he has a big future ahead, either in England or in Italy.
