That’s according to a recent claim from the Telegraph’s John Percy who has suggested the Portuguese tactician could be heading to London.

Santo departed Wolves at the end of the most recent 2020-21 campaign, believed to be on mutual grounds.

However, following the release of Eagles manager and veteran gaffer Roy Hodgson, Crystal Palace has been sounding out possible long-term replacements.

Despite Wolves’ largely underwhelming 2020-21 domestic campaign, Santo is still widely regarded as a top-tier manager and one who is capable of leading a team to punch above their weight.

With some shrewd recruitment, there is no reason why Crystal Palace cannot go on to break into the Premier League’s top eight sides – a step the club will be keen to take since cementing their place among England’s elites since their promotion back in 2013.
