    Crystal Palace are hopeful that they will win the race to sign Aaron Wan-Bissaka from Manchester United, sources have told 90min.

    The 25-year-old has struggled with injuries so far this season and has made just one appearance under Erik ten Hag.

    90min revealed earlier in December that United would sanction Wan-Bissaka’s departure as they look to revamp their options at right-back, and several Premier League sides have since registered an interest.

    West Ham and Wolves are keen on Wan-Bissaka – the latter looking to bolster their squad under new manager Julen Lopetegui and provide competition for Nelson Semedo – but 90min understands that Palace are hoping to re-sign the defender, initially on loan.

    Wan-Bissaka first joined Palace as an 11-year-old and played much of his youth career as a winger, eventually being converted to a no-nonsense full-back.

    After a breakout 2019/20 campaign, in which he gained a reputation for shutting down the Premier League’s elite wingers and won Palace’s player of the year award, Wan-Bissaka earned himself a £50m move to United.

    He was a regular in two-and-a-half seasons under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, though has scarcely been since in Ralf Rangnick and Ten Hag’s tenures.

    Palace did not initially sign a direct replacement to Wan-Bissaka, though would bring back fellow academy graduate Nathaniel Clyne from Liverpool on a free transfer the following year. He and Joel Ward have usually started at right-back for the Eagles since.
