Crystal Palace and Swansea City set for summer transfer fight over Italy international striker

Crystal Palace and Swansea City are keeping tabs on Anderlecht striker Stefano Okaka, according to reports in Belgium.

The Italian frontman, who joined Anderlecht from Sampdoria last summer, has netted 12 goals in his first season in the Belgian Pro-League.

According to Het Laatste Nieuws, Palace and Swansea are now keen on bringing the former Fulham man to the Premier League in the close season.

Okaka’s contract with Anderlecht runs until 2019 but with the influx of TV money heading to Premier League clubs next season, the Belgian giants could be tempted to cash in on the 26-year-old.

Both clubs have scouted Okaka – capped three times by Italy – in recent weeks and contact with the player’s agent is expected to be made before the end of the season.
