The defensive department of the Crystal Palace squad needs quality additions this summer.

According to the football transfer rumours in British media, Crystal Palace will make firm offer for Copenhagen centre-back Victor Nelsson.

The 22-year-old has been subject to interest from various European clubs.

Copenhagen spent 3.6 million euros to sign the Denmark international

from FC Nordsjælland in the summer of 2019. The 22-year-old has three years left on his current contract which expires in 2024.

The centre-back has featured in 30 matches for Copenhagen this term, netting one goal in all competitions.

The 22-year-old has been touted as one of the brightest young prospects in Denmark.

Victor Nelsson has represented Denmark at Under-18, Under-19, Under-20 and Under-21 level, winning 42 caps and scoring one goal, before making his senior international debut in November 2020. As a member of Denmark national football team, Nelsson won one cap.

Nelsson is set to be a man in demand in the summer transfer window, with a host of clubs queuing up to pursue his signature.

Palace are looking to sign a centre-back and have identified the 22-year-old as potential transfer target. They have built a reputation for recruiting young talent from within Europe, predominantly targeting those with sell-on value and immense potential.

The Premier League club will have funds to spend in the market and it will be interesting to see how they approach the summer transfer window.

The centre-back heavily relies on his ability to read the game. It is coupled with his sensible tackling and an excellent sense of positioning, allowing him to repel most of the danger in the defensive third.

According to the report, “Crystal Palace are launching an offer for FC Copenhagen defender Victor Nelsson. Ekstra Bladet says Palace are in search of younger defenders, with Mamadou Sakho, Scott Dann, James Tomkins and Gary Cahill all in the veteran status. Nelsson is currently preparing to captain Denmark at the U21 Euros next week. Palace are readying a first offer for Nelsson, but will face competition. Burnley boss Sean Dyche is also keen on bringing the young stopper to England this summer.”


Crystal Palace have to fork out a huge transfer fee if they are genuinely interested in the Denmark international.

Copenhagen are preparing to sell their centre-back should they receive a massive offer for him.

Good signing for Crystal Palace?

It is smart from the club to invest in younger players, rather than splashing out big money on experienced players with no resale value.

Although he may not be an immediate improvement to the squad, he could be a valuable signing for the future if he continues to progress at this rate.

It will be interesting to see if Crystal Palace make their move for the 22-year-old in the coming weeks.
