Ahead of the 1-0 defeat to Chelsea, Palace chairman Steve Parish hinted a deal for the player was on the cards.

“We are trying, these things are never straightforward but we really are trying to get someone in early if we can,” he told beIN Sports.

“It will make a big difference and we think it will lift everybody.

“For once, the papers are not miles off what we’re looking for.”

And manager Roy Hodgson echoed his boss’ comments in an interview with talkSPORT.

“We make no bones of the fact we are looking for someone to lead our line and score some goals for us,” he said.
