Football-30 December 19:16 GMT
Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson has admitted his interest in taking Liverpool striker Dominic Solanke on loan for his misfiring side hampered by injuries and blunt strikers.
“It’s no secret he’s a target,” said Hodgson. “What would he do? Provide an attacking threat. He’s a proven goalscorer through all the age groups at (former youth club) Chelsea and England. He was quoted by the club website
“If he comes here, it’ll be up to him to show he can do that in Premier League football.
“He’s someone with the profile we’re looking for, and the ability we are looking for. We know him better from the England games, and the performances with England.
“I thought he was a good signing from Liverpool’s point of view, but he’s been kept out of the team by some very strong players.
“It would take some player to knock their front three out of the team so it’s not a negative in relation to him that he’s not been able to do so.”
