Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew
According to The Telegraph, Crystal Palace are looking to spend the money from Yannick Bolasie's move to Everton on deals for Moussa Sissoko and Christian Benteke.
Bolasie, 27, completed his move to Everton earlier today as he brought his four-year spell at Selhurst Park to an end, and manager Alan Pardew will be keen to splash the cash following Saturday's 1-0 home defeat to West Bromwich Albion.

Reinforcements are needed, and The Telegraph claim that Palace have a number of targets, and will be looking to reinvest the money brought in from Bolasie's move, and Mile Jedinak's imminent switch to Aston Villa.
It's claimed that Palace will continue to push for a deal with Liverpool for striker Christian Benteke, who has endured a difficult time at Anfield since signing from Aston Villa last summer.

The Belgian hitman, 25, scored just ten goals in 42 games for the Reds last season, and now finds himself behind the likes of Roberto Firmino, Daniel Sturridge, Divock Origi and Danny Ings in the pecking order under Jurgen Kloopp – and with Palace desperate for a striker, Benteke appears to fit the bill, with Palace allegedly earmarking around £28m for the striker.
It's added that Palace have also enquired about a deal for Chelsea striker Loic Remy, who worked with manager Pardew at Newcastle, as well as another of Pardew's former players in Newcastle midfielder Moussa Sissoko.

The powerful midfielder, 26, had a hot-and-cold campaign as Newcastle suffered relegation to the Championship last season, but then looked like a completely different player for France at Euro 2016, as he impressed under Didier Deschamps.
Now unlikely to want to play in the Championship, Sissoko is looking for a move away from St. James' Park – and with Pardew looking to add more options to his midfield, he's believed to be keen on a reunion with Sissoko.
Pardew brought Sissoko to Newcastle in January 2013, and whilst the Magpies are believed to want a fee of £35m, Palace will be hoping to negotiate that fee down as they look to reinvest the money form Bolasie's departure.
