Crystal Palace eyeing experience

Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson will attempt to strengthen his squad with experienced top-flight players when the transfer window reopens, according to the Mail Online.

The Eagles signed just four players in the summer though three of those were aged twenty-one or under, with two of those only coming in on loan.

To say the squad is under achieving would be an understatement after they became the first side in Premier League history to lose each of their opening seven games without scoring a single goal.

Out-of-favour Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere, who has almost one hundred and fifty Premier League appearances to his name and has played under Hodgson for England is one target for the Eagles though they are likely to face competition in the race for his services.

Palace host champions Chelsea on Saturday afternoon and can be backed at a price of 7/1 for the win.
