Crystal Palace have lost three senior strikers this summer and need reinforcements as a matter of urgency.

Bookmakers SkyBet have installed Crystal Palace as the new 11/8 favourites to sign free agent Hal Robson-Kanu, as their need for added firepower in forward positions becomes more urgent.

The Welshman was hugely impressive during his country's run to the semi-finals at Euro 2016, scoring two goals while showcasing his tireless work ethic at the same time.

He is available on a free transfer following his release from Reading this summer and would be a useful addition to the Palace squad.

SkyBet list Hull City as 3/1 second favourites in the race for Robson-Kanu's signature, just ahead of Swansea City who are available at 4/1.

The 27-year-old has been highly sought after this summer, and while he is not the most prolific of strikers, his ability to create opportunities for others with his relentless, unselfish runs into the channels is exactly what Palace boss Alan Pardew looks for in a player.

Robson-Kanu has 35 international caps with Wales to his name and is highly experienced, despite arguably not having reached the prime of his career as yet.

He can play anywhere along the front-line, and that versatility could prove to be a huge asset to whichever club eventually wins the race for his signature.
