Crystal Palace readying Islam Slimani bid
Crystal Palace are said to be weighing up a winter offer for Sporting Lisbon attacker Islam Slimani.
The 27-year-old has been on the radar of several Premier League clubs since his exploits with Algeria at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
According to Portuguese outlet A Bola, the Eagles are willing to pay a fee in excess of £22m, which would automatically trigger the player's release clause.
Should Slimani move to the Eagles, he would break the £13m record fee paid to bring Yohan Cabaye to Selhurst Park in the summer.
Slimani has netted 41 goals in 90 outings for Sporting till date.
