Crystal Palace have been keeping tabs on 18-year-old Chelsea utility man Lewis Hall in recent weeks.
Apparently, the Eagles are exploring a loan move for the teenager in the coming weeks.
Hall needs to play regularly at this stage of his career, and a loan move could be ideal for him.
Crystal Palace would provide him with a platform to play every week, and it will help his development.
The 18-year-old has been given first-team chances by Frank Lampard in recent weeks.
The Argentine has been appointed as the permanent manager of Chelsea, and he will be expected to reshape the squad in the coming weeks.
While there is no doubt that the 18-year-old defender could be a useful squad player for Chelsea, he needs more game time in order to fulfil his potential and sitting on the bench at Stamford Bridge might not be ideal for him.
The defender was recently handed four starts in a row under Frank Lampard, and he will be delighted with the opportunities at Stamford Bridge.
Meanwhile, Chelsea and Crystal Palace have worked on loan deals in the past when Conor Gallagher impressed during his loan spell at Selhurst Park during the 2021/22 season.
Crystal Palace will hope to secure a similar agreement with Chelsea for Hall before the summer transfer window closes.
The 18-year-old utility man will look to carry on his development with regular football at Selhurst Park if the transfer goes through, and he could return to Chelsea as a better player next year.
