Palace are in the hunt to sign at least one new striker this summer and are currently pursuing a deal for West Brom striker Saido Berahino, who will cost in the region of £20million.

However, Eagles boss Alan Pardew is also exploring other avenues and Babacar, who was born in Senegal, has been on his radar for quite some time.

Reports in the Italian press now claim that Fiorentina are actively looking to move Babacar on as they attempt to raise some finance to fund some new signings of their own.

A fee of €10million (£8.35m) has been suggested and that would not be a problem for Pardew, who is armed with his largest transfer kitty yet this summer.

West Ham United are also reported to be keen on the striker, who scored just five goals in Serie A last season.
