Premier League strugglers Crystal Palace are in desperate need of a striker.
Christian Benteke joined Connor Wickham in the treatment room with a knee injury he picked against Manchester City and is expected to be ruled out for at least six weeks.
Without a recognized striker in their ranks, the Eagles are eyeing a potential move for a free agent striker to solve their problems in the front line.
Crystal Palace are yet to score a single goal in the Premier League and are reportedly eyeing a move for the 33-year-old former West Ham forward Carlton Cole.
Cole is a free agent following a disappointing spell in Indonesian football which only started in March.
He has been training with League One side Southend to keep up his fitness and Roy Hodgson is thinking about offering him a chance to return to Premier League football.
Former Liverpool striker Rickie Lambert is another free agent linked with Crystal Palace.
