New Crystal Palace manager Tony Pulis is ready to make a £6m move for Blackburn striker Jordan Rhodes in January as he looks to keep his side clear of relegation, according to reports from The Mirror.
The former Stoke boss recently took control of the struggling Eagles, who are currently one place from the foot of the Premier League table and have the lowest scoring tally in the division.
Pulis sees his new side’s struggles in front of goal as a particular source of concern, and believes that a big move for Rhodes could keep them clear of a return to the Championship.
Palace are thought to have the funds to pursue a deal for the prolific Scot, and could take advantage of Rovers’ financial woes.
Blackburn signed Rhodes from Huddersfield for £8m just 15 months ago, but may be forced to let him leave for a slightly reduced fee.
The player himself could be keen to make a move to the top tier, however it remains to be seen as to whether he will be willing to risk an immediate return to his current division, with the Selhurst Park club currently facing the threat of relegation.
Could Jordan Rhodes fire Crystal Palace to safety?
