In need of a striker after letting Michy Batshuayi return to Chelsea, Crystal Palace are looking around Europe for their man.
With just over a week left in the transfer window, we might see some actual movement, especially if Everton end up spending over £50m on Wilfried Zaha.
One of the names linked to Selhurst Park is CSKA Moscow’s Fyodor Chalov, who has previously been associated with bigger clubs, such as Arsenal and Monaco.
According to Championat in Russia, Palace ‘intend to make an offer to CSKA in the near future’ of around €15m for the striker who already has a goal and an assist in the 2019/20 season for his club.
That’s as far as the details go, and there’s no indication as to whether or not the Russians will accept the offer from the Premier League side should it land on their desk.
Breaking into the first team back in 2017, Chalov scored 17 goals and assisted teammates seven times in 37 games last season.
A tally that could do the world of good for Roy Hodgson if he ended up replicating that form in England in the upcoming campaign.
