Crystal Palace are looking to spend somewhere in the region of £22 million for the Algerian striker Islam Slimani who has manged to score 12 goals in 15 games for his club Sporting Lisbon .

Alan Pardew has been looking at many different strikers who could fit in to the Palace team however despite having a earlier bid rejected for the Algerian Alan Pardew has come back with this £22 million bid for him just to show that they are not messing around this transfer window.

This impressive record of 12 goals in 15 games means that he is already ahead of the top goal scorer at Crystal Palace as Connor Wickham is the only Palace striker to have scored in the premier league this season it is unknown whether or not this bid from palace has been accepted or not but my guess is that it will be accepted in the near future as no player is going to turn down a move to the Premier League especially to such a good, and mostly young, team like Palace where he could partner with the likes of Bolasie and Zaha. I think the signing would be a great one for Crystal Palace as it may even put a spring in their step.
