Crystal Palace plotting £20m swoop for new striker

In the Crystal Palace fans’ booth here in the Transfer Tavern, they are often worriedly discussing their lack of options up front.

With main striker Christian Benteke still recovering from injury, Palace lack an out and out striker to fill his void.

Therefore, they will be relieved to hear that this is something that Roy Hodgson plans to address in January.

According to a report by The Daily Mail, Besiktas striker Cenk Tosun is on Crystal Palace’s wishlist.

The 26-year-old is one of Crystal Palace’s top targets ahead of the re-opening of the transfer window in the new year and it is thought that he will cost the London based outfit up to £20m to land.

Tosun has an eye for goal and has impressed in Turkey with Besiktas.

The Turkey international has five domestic goals this season for the Black Eagles and a further three goals in three matches in the Champions League.

Roy Hodgson is planning to spend big in January as he looks to improve his squad to save them from relegation.

Cenk Tosun is one of a number of targets being discussed.

Our landlord believes that, if Palace can keep their stars such as Wilfried Zaha and Christian Benteke, and add two or three quality players, they should stay up.
