Picture of the 1.8 m (5ft 11 in) tall English/Ivorian centre forward of Crystal Palace

Born in Abidjan, Côte d'Ivoire, his family emigrated to England when he was four years old, he played football at school and was scouted and brought in by Crystal Palace to their academy at the age of twelve in 2004. After six years of progressing through the youth ranks he was given his debut for the first-team on 27 March 2010, coming on as a substitute in a 2-1 loss to Cardiff City. On 7 August 2010, the striker scored his first professional goal in a 3-2 win over Leicester City. The Ivorian had his breakthrough season during the 2011/12 EFL Championship campaign, scoring 6 goals and registering 7 assists in 41 Championship appearances, ending the season as The Football League's Young Player of the Year and Crystal Palace Young Player of the Year. The following season the forward would go one better as his 8 goals and 11 assists in 48 appearances helped Crystal Palace win promotion to the Premier League via playoffs. He earned a place for himself in the PFA Championship Team of the Year for his efforts. On 26 January 2013, he signed a five-and-a-half deal with Manchester United, joining for a fee of £10 million. On 11 August 2013, he made his debut as Manchester United overcame Wigan Athletic 2-1 in the Community Shield, giving him his first piece of silverware. It was all downhill from there for the youngster, he made only three other appearances for The Red Devils, enduring a difficult time under struggling manager David Moyes. After the disappointment of not making the grade at Old Trafford the Londoner moved back to his hometown club Crystal Palace, signing on a five-year deal for an undisclosed fee. Two days later after his arrival the frontman scored the equalizing goal in a 3-3 draw against Newcastle United, the prodigal son had returned. Since his move to Selhurst Park the striker has featured in 180 games for The Eagles, scoring 35 and assisting 33 goals. During his tenure he has won Crystal Palace Player of the Year three years on the trot, including the 2015/16, 2016/17 and 2017/18 season.
