Senegal star linked

Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace are reported to be showing an interest in Senegal international midfielder Papa Alioune Ndjaye.

The 26-year-old currently plays his football with Turkish outfit Osmanlispor and has been catching the eye with his performances, particularly in the Europa League.

Palace scouts are reported to have checked him out against Romanian side Steaua Bucharest last week and all the signs point to a January bid being launched.

It will take an offer in the region of £7million to tempt Osmanlispor in to selling while there is also reported interest from Premier League rivals Everton.

Much could also depend on the future of Alan Pardew, as it remains to be seen whether the Eagles boss will still be in charge to complete a deal.
