Crystal Palace eyeing prolific Championship marksman

Eagles chief Alan Pardew is likely to delve into the transfer market this summer in a bid to bolster his squad, with goals, perhaps, a priority as Glenn Murray ended the campaign just gone as the club’s highest Premier League scorer with only seven to his name.
