It has also been reported by the British tabloid that Fulham want to secure the services of the former Aston Villa central defender as well.
However, the Cottager have been unable to agree a deal for the 33-year-old centre-back, and the Eagles are keen on persuading the England international to move to Selhurst Park instead, according to the report.
“Palace would like to take him on loan for the rest of the season but both sides are open to a deal beyond that,” adds the report in The Sun.
Good signing for Crystal Palace?
Cahill is a very experienced defender who has been a huge success in the Premier League, and there is no doubt that the 33-year-old will be a good signing for Palace in the January transfer window.
With the Eagles in danger of getting relegated to the Championship at the end of the season, manager Roy Hodgson’s side could do with a defender of Cahil’s calibre and quality.
Cahill has won the Premier League title twice, and the Champions League and the Europa League once each with Chelsea.
