AC Milan forward comments on 'dream' Palace move

The Crystal Palace Eagle

Crystal Palace target and AC Milan forward Nnamdi Oduamadi has commented on rumours linking him with a move to Selhurst Park.

The Crystal Palace strike-force has managed just five goals between them to date, as the club lie 18th in the Premier League table, and Neil Warnock has revealed he will look to sign a new striker in January.

Naturally the club's financial limitations will prevent them from competing for the top centre-forwards. Therefore, the Palace manager could be forced to broaden his search, with the Italy falling within his remit.

AC Milan forward Nnamdi Oduamadi, who is currently on loan at Serie B side Crotone, admits the Eagles hierarchy have sent scouts to watch him in action. 

He said: “Crystal Palace have come to watch me and they are interested. It would be a dream of mine to play for them in the Premier League.”

While the 24-year-old's goalscoring record is nothing to write home about - he has scored just once in nine appearances for Crotone this term - he has proven his credentials at international level with Nigeria and could prove to be a decent addition at Selhurst Park.

Having made only one appearance for Milan since signing for the club in 2008, it is looking highly likely that the Italian side will be willing to offload him for the right price in the new year. However, work permit issues may scupper any potential move to England.
