Signing Everton man makes all kind of sense for Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace will be hoping to steer well clear of being dragged into any sort of relegation battle in the second half of the season.

The Eagles sit just three points above third bottom Cardiff City at the moment, and despite the odd big result going their way, they have in the main struggled for consistency.

Roy Hodgson is keen to address the big issues in his squad before the January window slams shut in the coming week, and he is being linked with a move for Everton striker Cenk Tosun, who only joined the Toffees in a big money move last season.

Signing a striker was always going to be a priority for Hodgson and Palace, as the club have limped to a very average 23 goals this season, with most of those coming from the likes of wingers like Wilf Zaha and Andros Townsend.

Down the middle has yielded little success for the club, with Christian Benteke woefully out of form.

The signing of Tosun the makes sense for Palace, and the Turkish star is clearly a man capable of getting in and amongst the goals on his day.

Tosun hasn’t necessarily done anything too wrong at Goodison Park, but new manager Marco Silva clearly doesn’t fancy him as his main number nine, and so a January move for some first team football might be the perfect chance for Tosun to show what he is made of.

Palace need goals, put simply, and Tosun would slot in nicely between their exciting wide-men while taking some of the responsibility off the out of form Benteke.

Palace fans, do you agree? Would you like to see Tosun signed? Let us know!
