Crystal Palace's newest target has aspirations to join a rival London club.

The Sun reported earlier this week that Wilfried Kanon is high on Palace's January shopping list, after the Ivorian defender's impressive displays for ADO Den Haag.

 

But the newspaper claims the Eagles aren't the only club keen on Kanon, who is said to have interest from a host of others in England, as well as Spain.

And after his comments to a Dutch website earlier this year, the 25-year-old will hope that one of those is based nine miles north west of Crystal Palace.

"Chelsea, that's where I want to go," Kanon told Voetbalzone.

Having only played professionally in Holland and Romania, however, any chance to play in England's top division would surely appeal.

And with an international colleague already on Palace's books in Wilfried Zaha, Kanon may find the Eagles among the more attractive propositions.

Would the ADO Den Haag defender be a good addition for Crystal Palace?
