The Daily Mirror claims Crystal Palace haven’t blinked and been put off by Swansea City’s £9 million request for striker Bafetimbi Gomis.
Gomis’ departure might not go down particularly well with Swans fans who have just been forced to see Wilfried Bony leave the club and join Manchester City.
However, Rhodes is one of the most talented Scottish players around at the moment and could be effective in the Premier League.
There would have likely been concerns for Palace fans that Swansea’s price tag (which is based on Swansea making money back according to the Times) would have put the club off from making a move but the paper suggests they haven’t been deterred.
Whether Rhodes for Gomis is a good swap for Swansea is debatable but it looks like the latter’s exit is a deal, which will happen before the end of the current transfer window.
