​Crystal Palace hopeful over loan for Juventus defender Dragusin

Crystal Palace are hoping to secure a loan deal for Romanian defender Radu Dragusin.

The 19-year-old Juventus center back re-signed with the Italian giants last month, but may be available on a season long loan.

Dragusin has only played one Serie A game this season, when he came on in stoppage time against Genoa in December.

Given he faces competition from the likes of Matthijs De Ligt, Giorgio Chiellini, Leonardo Bonucci and Merih Demiral for a starting spot in Turin, a loan seems inevitable.

Palace would be happy to sign the Romanian, per The Sun, who has been compared to Virgil Van Dijk in his play-style.
