Crystal Palace eye move for Everton striker Arouna Kone - sources

Crystal Palace are lining up a late move for Everton striker Arouna Kone, sources close to the London club have told ESPN FC.

Everton boss Ronald Koeman confirmed earlier this week Kone could leave before Tuesday's transfer deadline after dropping down the pecking order at Goodison Park.

The Ivory Coast international has made just six appearances for Everton this season with his last coming in the FA Cup defeat to Leicester.

Kone joined Everton in the summer of 2013 in a £6 million deal from Wigan and, despite signing a new deal last summer, Everton are willing to let him move on.

Palace boss Sam Allardyce is keen to bolster his attacking options before the transfer window closes and has targeted Kone with time running out on Tuesday night.
