Eagles switch attentions to Everton star
Crystal Palace are believed to have turned their focus to Everton's Oumar Niasse after a move for Dominic Solanke broke down.
Liverpool striker Solanke was thought to be a player at the top of Roy Hodgson's wishlist but it looks like that deal is dead in the water and Palace have swiftly looked at other targets.
The Eagles' gaze did not have to go far because just across Stanley Park they are believed to have identified a target in the form of Niasse, who Everton paid £13.5million for in January 2016.
It looks like the Toffees could end up making a significant loss on the Senegal international, as the Eagles move back in for the player who they were interested in over the summer.
