Alan Pardew confirms how many players Crystal Palace are looking at signing in January

Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew has confirmed his intention to bring in a striker.

Alan Pardew has told reporters at his press conference this afternoon that Crystal Palace are tracking one or two players in the January transfer window.

Palace are on the look out for a striker, and they have been linked with a host of names.

The likes of Charlie Austin, Emmanuel Adebayor and Khouma Babacar have all been touted as potential signings for the Eagles, but Pardew insists none of the trio are on his radar.

The former Newcastle United boss did suggest that there were other names that haven’t been linked on his wishlist though.

Palace have lacked a potent goalscorer all season, with none of the strikers finding the back of the net with much regularity.

The likes of Connor Wickham, Dwight Gayle and Frazier Campbell have all struggled for goals - leaving Yohan Cabaye as the club’s top scorer, despite only having netted five times.

Palace highest scoring striker is Gayle, who has got on the scoresheet on four occasions, but all of his goals have come in the Capital One Cup.
