Crystal Palace are ready to offer Swansea City forward Michu the chance to return to the Premier League, according to reports.

Michu caught the attention of onlookers with a number of impressive performances after joining the south Wales club in 2012. The Spaniard is currently on-loan at Napoli, however reports suggest that the Italian club are willing to allow Michu leave in January after failing to score in five appearances.

The 28-year-old has had a reoccurring injury worry leaving the Spaniard requiring surgery to his ankle.

Despite exploding onto the Premier League scene Michu's time in the first team was limited after failing to maintain his impressive run of performances manager Garry Monk opted to play Wilfried Bony in attack.

Monk then made the move to sign Lyon's Bafetimbi Gomis pushing the 28-year-old further down the pecking order at the Liberty Stadium.

Michu not in Monk's plans

Garry Monk has added fuel to the fire by suggesting an exit for Michu after he ruled out a move to bring back the forward back to the Liberty Stadium, despite being faced with the prospect of losing Wilfried Bony for up to a month in the New Year due to national commitments.

The 35-year-old is quoted by Wales Online as saying: "Michu is on loan at Napoli for the season. I'm not even thinking about that, I've not even checked the details of the loan.

Crystal Palace manager, Neil Warnock, has made it clear that signing a new striker is a major priority for Crystal Palace when the transfer window opens in January.
