  Palace interested in Toulouse defender Christopher Jullien Crystal Palace are one of three Premier League sides interested in signing Toulouse centre-back Christopher Jullien this summer. It’s set to be a busy few months for the French club, with a number of key players linked with a move away and it seems Jullien could be among those who depart ahead of next season. Southampton and Burnley are both on the lookout for a new central defender and the latest name to be linked is the towering Frenchman, who has impressed over the years at Toulouse. It’s claimed by French media outlet La Depeche that the 25-year-old would be keen to secure a move to the Premier League this summer, putting the three top-flight clubs on red alert. The report indicates that any potential suitors would perhaps be able to recruit Jullien at a low-cost, with a figure of €10m touted by Le Depeche.

According to a claim in the Belgian media both Wolverhampton Wanderers and West Ham United are ‘closely following’ Standard Liege attacker Edmilson Junior . Fiorentina, Genoa and Sassuolo are all said to be monitoring Edmilson and a move to Serie A is a strong possibility this summer.

West Ham considering swoop for Sam Johnstone .
West Ham are reportedly considering a swoop for Manchester United goalkeeper Sam Johnstone. According to claims from the Guardian, the Hammers’ plans ahead of next season are well underway and with the club keen to land a new goalkeeper, Johnstone is under consideration. The shot-stopper spent the duration of last season on loan at Aston Villa as he helped them to a play-off final. Steve Bruce’s men were defeated in the final by Fulham, however, and it is now unlikely that Johnstone will make his stay permanent. West Ham are now apparently contemplating a move for the goalkeeper, who remains on the books at Old Trafford. The Hammers are unlikely to pursue a permanent deal for Joe Hart following his unsuccessful loan spell at the club. Meanwhile, Adrian has been linked with a move back to Spain this summer. Therefore, it comes as no surprise to see Manuel Pellegrini actively searching for a new goalkeeper, with Johnstone the latest name to be linked.
