Bolasie has joined Premier League rivals Everton in a deal worth £30million and Eagles boss Alan Pardew is now desperately trying to bolster his ranks before the transfer window closes.

Burke has now emerged as a possible target and reports are rife that Pardew is willing to splash out as much as £8million to bring him to Selhurst Park.

Arsenal and Liverpool are also known to be in the hunt and have sent scouts to check him out in recent weeks with a view to making a pre-deadline raid.

Palace will need to move quickly to fight off the competition and secure a deal for the youngster, who got off the mark with a goal in the win over Burton on the opening day of the season.
