Three new targets

After narrowly missing out on Gylfi Sigurdsson and Steven Caulker Tony Pulis has wasted no time in lining up the three new targets as the new season edges nearer.

Stoke City's N'Zonzi is thought to be the most likely of Pulis' targets to make the move to Selhurst Park after handing in a transfer request in May. A move will see the French midfielder team up with former boss Pulis.

N'Zonzi impressed under Pulis whilst at Stoke making 38 appearances, which led the manager at the time to claim his player would 'one day play in the Champions League'.

French players scouted
Another of the targets reportedly on Pulis' radar is Marseille midfielder Morgan Amalfitano who impressed on loan at West Brom last season.

The 29-year-old made 26 league appearances scoring four goals whilst on loan at the Baggies. Amalfitano is thought to be available for around £2.5m, however Palace will have to fight off competition from Sunderland and Aston Villa for the midfielder's signature.
Michael Ciani is the latest player to be linked with a move to Palace. The veteran defender is thought to be a viable alternative to Steven Caulker, who joined Queens Park Rangers.

The experienced centre back has played in both the French and Italian major leagues as well representing France at international level. Ciani would likely provide competition for Damien Delaney and Scott Dann in the Palace defence.
