Crystal Palace considering moves for Nicklas Bendtner and Emmanuel Adebayor

Crystal Palace have struggled for goals in the Premier League as of late, which has compelled manager Alan Pardew to look for reinforcements in the January transfer window.

The Eagles have failed to score in their last five league games - a stark contrast to the form that once saw them seventh in the top-flight.

And in a bid to strengthen his side's firepower, Pardew has earmaked two former Premier League strikers as potential January signings.

According to the Daily Mail, Palace are monitoring Nicklas Bendtner and Emmanuel Adebayor, both ex-Arsenal players.

Pardew said: "There is Adebayor and a couple of others that have been mentioned. A few more have come to light.

"Bendtner is available and there’s someone else we are looking at. Someone who can fit into our group and give us a lift, a big player coming in."

The latter Dane currently plies his trade in the Bundesliga with Wolfsburg but has struggled to adapt following his 2014 move.

Now into his second season at the Volkswagan Arena, Bendtner is yet to reach double figures with regards to goals despite making 49 appearances.

Wolfsburg are reportedly unimpressed by the Denmark international's lack of fitness following the winter break and open to offers for the striker.

Adebayor, meanwhile, hasn’t played first-team football since May 2015 and is also available. Despite being released from his Tottenham contract last summer, the Togo international is still being paid £100,000-per-week until he finds a new club.

Palace are in need of inspiration, that much is certain, though the question remains of whether Bendtner and Adebayor are capable of reinvigorating the attacking line at Selhurst Park.
