Crystal Palace are reportedly among the clubs who are in the race to sign promising winger Javier Ontiveros from Malaga this summer. 

According to claims from ESPN, the Eagles are keeping a close eye on his situation in Spain, as he is keen to complete a move to the Premier League ahead of next season.

Palace could be on the lookout for additional quality in the final third of the pitch this summer amid speculation surrounding the future of Wilfried Zaha.

However, if they are to pursue a deal for Ontiveros, it seems they will be faced with stiff competition from their Premier League rivals. 

ESPN reports that newly-promoted pair Norwich City and Sheffield United are both keen on the former Spain Under-19 international, with the Canaries at the front of the queue to secure his signature. 

Ontiveros caught the eye with some exciting performances on the flanks for Malaga last season as he helped them reach the play-offs of the Segunda Liga.
