CENK TOSUN is one of many Premier League outcast forwards potentially on the move in January with Crystal Palace keen.
New reports suggest the Turk is being considered as an alternative to Eagles’ top target Michy Batshuayi.
Since arriving on Merseyside for £27million two years ago, Tosun has struggled to regularly find the net with new boss Carlo Ancelotti only handing him a single appearance.
And that has alerted Palace to a possible loan deal, according to Daily Mail.
SunSport understand Roy Hodgson to be waiting on Chelsea’s final word on a similar temporary swoop for Belgian striker Batshuayi.
Celtic star Odsonne Edouard is another on their shortlist but that deal may not be feasible until the summer.
Fellow Prem side Aston Villa and Newcastle are also in the market for a forward, generating links with Chelsea pair Batshuayi and Olivier Giroud.
