Crystal Palace are reportedly keen on Newcastle winger Andros Townsend.
The Eagles suffered a dismal second half of the season, and manager Pardew must add to his squad this summer in order to avoid a poor start to next season.
Pardew should have money to spend, and The Mirror report that he could look to use it on Andros Townsend, currently playing for Pardew's former club Newcastle United.
Townsend, 24, was frozen out at Tottenham Hotspur and decided to move to Newcastle in order to play some first-team football, and his move paid dividends.
The winger impressed on Tyneside, hitting four goals and two assists in just 12 games for the Magpies, earning a recall to the England squad - only to narrowly miss out on a place at Euro 2016.
Despite his personal success, Townsend suffered relegation with Newcastle and will be playing in the Championship next season, unless a club pays the £8m release clause in his contract.
It's claimed that, despite having two top wingers in Yannick Bolasie and Wilfried Zaha in his ranks, Pardew wants to land Townsend for that £8m price and bring him back to London this summer.
Adding competition for Bolasie and Zaha may be a wise move from Pardew, but fans will be looking to see other areas of the squad strengthened, whilst Townsend may end up receiving other offers thanks to that release clause - or he could even choose to stay with Newcastle and help Rafael Benitez's men push for promotion next season.
Do you think Townsend should stay at Newcastle or join Palace?
