Crystal Palace have been handed a boost in their pursuit of Nantes striker Emiliano Sala.

According to reports in France, as cited on Sport Witness, the striker is believed to be unhappy at his club and wants to complete a move elsewhere sooner rather than later, with his sights set on the Premier League.

Palace, West Ham and Leicester have all been linked with moves to sign the striker after his impressive run of form in Ligue 1.

With 11 goals to his name this season, he is outscoring the likes of Neymar and Edinson Cavani.

Alongside French superstar Kylian Mbappe, Sala is the joint-top goalscorer in Ligue 1 at this present time.

His performances have not gone unnoticed and with Crystal Palace in need of another forward, Roy Hodgson’s side have been alerted.

Goal-shy Crystal Palace have been heavily relying on the form of Wilfried Zaha in the absence of Christian Benetke.
