Report: Palace line up £500k bid for Nemanja Nikolic

The Crystal Palace Eagle

Crystal Palace are reportedly keen on signing Nemanja Nikolic.

Crystal Palace are interested in signing Hungarian centre-forward Nemanja Nikolic, according to a report in the Daily Mail

The 27-year-old has emerged as a potential target for the Eagles, as Alan Pardew seems to have identified him as a player who could bring a lot to their squad. 

A clinical finisher, Nikolic's scoring record in his homeland has been hugely impressive and if he could carry that sort of form over to England then he would be an asset for any side. 

Nikolic has netted 154 times in 172 starting appearances in Hungary - with a record of 16 goals in 15 games this season - and he would be full of confidence if he were to move to Selhurst Park. 

The only worry is that Nikolic has never played outside of Hungary and he would be making a huge step up if he were to come to the Premier League

The target man is said to be available for around £500,000, meaning he would only be a small gamble if Palace were to pursue his signature. 

The London club are also said by the Daily Mail to be interested in buying Blackburn Rovers' forward Rudy Gestede and free-agent Shola Ameobi in the coming weeks.
