Sam Allardyce is trying to sign Robbie as a sign of intent in making sure the Eagles keep their Premier League status. Palace have been struggling in the left back department after Papa Souare their previous left back suffered a serious car accident in September which has ruled him out for the whole of the season. Brady looks like an ideal replacement having had Premier League experience while playing with Norwich last season.
Allardyce is trying to get the Norwich left back for just £7m but Alex Neil is sure that he is worth more and is trying to get Palace to pay £12m for him. Brady will definitely be tempted by another chance at Premier League football and with Norwich struggling to make the top 6 this season in the championship he might take the opportunity to work with the ex-Sunderland boss.
Alex Neil is keen to raise funds however which could seal the deal for Palace as he is trying to solve the scoring problem for the Canaries as their record signing, Steven Naismith, has not done the job in front of goal. Alex Neil is trying to secure the signing of Nahki Wells from Huddersfield. He could be expensive with the likes of Scott Hogan being talked about at £15m so you can see the reasoning by trying to get some more money for Brady.
Alex Neil is under fire from the Norwich fans after going on a terrible run which has seen Norwich drop down to 11th from 4th. If he wants to keep his job he may have to consider letting Brady go to finance their striker woes.
At the moment Palace haven’t furthered their £7m bid but Brady could well be on his way out of Carrow Road.
