The Lowdown: Fine form
The Latest: Palace interest
The Daily Mail shared a story on Monday regarding Akpom and a possible January transfer, with the player now in-demand.
They said that Palace, along with Premier League rivals Everton and Southampton, are monitoring the 27-year-old following his impressive displays under Michael Carrick.
The Verdict: New forward needed?
Palace are currently the lowest scorers in the top 15 sides in the Premier League, scoring just 17 times in 16 games. Wilfried Zaha is the only player to score more than five goals, however, his future is up in the air with his Selhurst Park contract set to expire in the summer.
Therefore, bringing in a new forward for Patrick Vieira this month could be a wise idea, and someone like Akpom could be a name to watch.
