I certainly wouldn't be against buying him but I think it really depends on price.  It's not the most pressing position in my mind.  If we are going to spend on a fullback I want a left sided one first.  I just feel that side is weaker and we actually do have a prospect up and coming on the right side, so, I'd just focus more on the other side of the pitch and use that money on other positions.

How Aaron Wan-Bissaka became the most effective defender in Europe

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/football/2019/03/08/aaron-wan-bissaka-became-effective-defender-europe/

February 25, 2018. Crystal Palace are preparing for a Premier League game at home to Tottenham. They have an injury list as long as their run of games without a win against Spurs, and a crisis in defence.

Right-backs Joel Ward and Martin Kelly are both out. Their back-up, Timothy Fosu-Mensah, is needed in central defence because so many other players are injured. So Roy Hodgson hands a professional debut to a player few in the ground had even heard of: the 20-year-old Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

Fast forward a year, and Wan-Bissaka is now among the most sought-after young players in English football. He has the kind of vital statistics that make football's data analysts drool, and is in contention to be handed a first England call-up when Gareth Southgate names his squad for the European Championship qualifiers against Czech Republic and Montenegro next Wednesday. 'Rapid rise' hardly begins to cover it.

Wan-Bissaka's background is well-chronicled - the Croydon boy from a tough estate in New Addington who was dazzling his PE teachers as a nine-year-old - but what is most striking about him is the sheer relish he has for defending. 

He may have started life as a winger, something he has in common with many of the best full-backs in the game at present (think Dani Alves, Danny Rose, Jordi Alba and former Palace youngster Nathaniel Clyne) but his taste for tackling has been obvious ever since he was first asked to fill in at right-back for a Palace first team training session late in 2016 and left Wilfried Zaha howling in frustration as he continually thwarted his efforts to get past him.

Just heartbreaking we will probably miss out on him. He is unreal defensively, truly moving toward a *Kante style but as a RB'. level.

Reece had best come good in a HUGE way.

Wan-Bissaka will be a TERROR for Manure or Shitty or Spuds or Arse

Rumored to join United. 

Devastating. Will be the best right back in the league eventually. 

That has been my biggest fear by far. He will so upgrade them as a whole.:(

Even without the bans I think the board might not even make a move, as they they think Azpi is still a world class, top five RB (some of our fellow supporters are delusional like that too).

I fear this year (another 4500 massive minute season) is going to make him even worse next year. We have run him into the ground over the last 5 years.

Hopefully Reece James comes good quickly.

Reece can also compete for a place at CB. In any case, if United, Liverpool, Spurs or City want Wan Bissaka, I doubt we'd get him. Ban or no ban.

James dribbles very well and has great crosses, I really hope he'll be a RB for us.

This is totally on the hypothetical Sarri or the next manager even uses James. 

Callum has had some minutes and, in my opinion, Reece is the better prospect of the two.

Premature, no? The step from the Championship to Premier league is massive. CHO already took the piss out of the Spurs and Arsenal defence when he's been given the chance.

Also, if we finally get rid of Zappa it's gonna be only Dave and Him.

I formed that opinion while Reece was still playing development football, never mind Championship stuff. I believe in the lad.

Yeah pretty much. The board would never pay lets say 50m for Bissaka who is actualy great prospect. But they would happily throw 40m on some average lad. 

As for Reece, next season with ban and current options not good enough (Azpi in decline/not fitting for this system while Zappa is simply not good enough), it would be best chance to get in the team. Same applies for other youngsters too. Rotating for Azpi with around 20 games or something would be great to prepare him slowly for top level. There would always be Azpi who despite not being at best, is reliable option, so no pressure on Reece. 

BUT knowing this club, I have zero faith this will happen. They will keep on playing Azpi and Zappa. And thats it.

Palace boss Roy Hodgson makes frank admission about Aaron Wan-Bissaka amid Man United interest

Roy Hodgson has been speaking about Aaron Wan-Bissaka's future at Crystal Palace ahead of the game against Newcastle

https://www.football.london/crystal-palace-fc/players/crystal-palace-boss-frank-admission-16088528

Crystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson admits that he is not surprised Aaron Wan-Bissaka has been attracting interest from top clubs in England and Germany this season.

 
The 21-year-old has been one of Palace's standout performers this season in the Premier League, with his displays at right-back for the Eagles attracting attention from several clubs, with Manchester United the latest to be linked with a move for the Croydon-born star.

And Hodgson has spoken out about the Palace academy product and whether speculation over his future will affect him.

“It is always hard to say whether a player would have their head turned by speculation of that type," said Hodgson, speaking at his pre-match press conference ahead of the Eagles' game against Newcastle today (Saturday).

Crystal Palace have rejected a bid of £50m from Manchester United for Aaron Wan-Bissaka, according to Sky sources.

Palace are unhappy with the structure of the bid, which would be an initial £35m plus £15m in add-ons for the 21-year-old right-back.

It is understood Palace would accept a straight £50m bid from United for Wan Bissaka.
