Crystal Palace's Best Summer Signing So Far: N/A
Dwight Gayle's rags-to-riches story from non-league football to the top flight has an Ian Wright-esque feel.
Gayle, a £4.5 million signing from Peterborough United with Sky Sports reporting the fee could rise to £8.5 million in add-ons, has struggled to adjust to the Premier League.
In Wright's debut campaign in the First Division, he scored eight league goals.
Gayle has netted twice in the current Premier League campaign.
Wright won the Golden Boot several seasons later and Sky Sports pundit Jamie Redknapp believes Gayle has been hindered from not being the No. 9.
"Dwight Gayle in the first couple of games was playing on the left side of midfield," said Redknapp, via Sky Sports. "The hardest thing in the world when you're a footballer is not playing in your best position."
Jose Campana, a £1.7 million signing from Sevilla, has floated around the pitch.
He isn't a midfield destroyer as he averages 1.3 tackles per game and his passing has been middle-of-the-road.
Palace manager Ian Holloway sees potential in Campana, but his inability to communicate has been a problem.
"It is a shame he can't speak more English because I might be picking him a bit more," said Holloway, via Carl Markham at The Independent. "I thought we settled a bit on the ball with Jose Campana."
Marouane Chamakh, who arrived after flopping at Arsenal, has won 45 headers but isn't a threat to score.
His decision to dive against Southampton irked Holloway.
"He went over far too easily," said Holloway, via BBC Sport. "I cannot understand why he didn't shoot or chip it."
