Alan Pardew admits that he’s interested in both Emmanuel Adebayor and Nicklas Bendtner

What a pair

Feasibly, Crystal Palace could have a front three of Marouane Chamakh, Emmanuel Adebayor and Nicklas Bendtner come February.

If that were to happen then, in all likelihood, Palace ought to be relegated straight down to League One… bypassing the Championship entirely.

But it’s possible because Palace manager Alan Pardew has admitted that he’s monitoring the positions of both Adebayor and Bendtner as he looks to bolster his attacking options.

The Eagles haven’t found the net in any of their last five Premier League fixtures and one has to wonder if either former Arsenal forward is the answer.

“We’re still going down the line of Adebayor and a couple of the others mentioned but a few more have come to light,” said Pardew.

“Bendtner is available and there’s someone else we are looking at. We’re after someone who can fit into our group and give us a lift. A big player coming in might do that.

“We’re having a terrific season but we’re experiencing a lull right now. So we need to give the fans a lift, as well as those in our group. We have to take that opportunity (to bring in a forward). It will make sense for our fans, our players and our chairman, Steve Parish. He’s probably keener than me and is hunting around for one.”

Premier League goalkeepers, you’ve been warned.
