Is Guehi good business?
The English centre-back is yet to feature in the Premier League, so £18m looks like quite the outlay for a youngster untested at that level. Nevertheless, Rosser believes it is still a good deal for Palace. He told TIF:
“Marc Guehi looks to be a canny bit of business, albeit, you know, it’s a fair chunk of their budget that has gone on him. But you can’t really look at what they’re doing this summer and not be impressed.
“They do need a lot more. Obviously, they’ve had a lot of players leave at the end of their contracts, so they do need to step it up. They’re going a lot earlier than a lot of their rivals, which is a good sign.”
After watching the likes of Mamadou Sakho and Gary Cahill leave as free agents, central defence had to be a priority for Palace, so they will surely be pleased that they have managed to get Guehi in and so early.
