Wolverhampton Wanderers appear to have sparked their Premier League rivals into life by making the first move for Stoke City midfielder Badou Ndiaye.
Fanatik reported earlier this month that Wolves had offered £22 million for the Senegal international, who is expected to bid farewell to the Potters after just five months following their relegation from the Premier League.
Everton and Newcastle United have been linked since and now there is a new name in the frame. Or, if you wish, an old name.
Palace were linked again before the 27-year-old joined Stoke in January for £14 million. And Aksam is now reporting that the Eagles are once again keen to sign Ndiaye this summer.
It is understood that Ndiaye is unlikely to return to Galatasaray, the club he joined last summer and left just a few months later. So it seems that a move to the Premier League is on the cards.
It remains to be seen, however, whether Crystal Palace are willing to pay more than the £22 million reportedly put on the table by Wolves.
If it comes down to a straight fight, the current Championship winners probably have the cash reserves to win.
