Croatian goalkeeper Lovre Kalinic is reportedly on the radar of Crystal Palace, as they step up their search for a new goalkeeper with the January transfer window in sight.
He is currently under contract with Belgian side Gent until 2021, but a report from CalcioMercato has suggested the 28-year-old could be nearing a Premier League switch, with his performances in goal for Croatia attracting the attention of many English clubs.
Aside from the Eagles' interest, Watford are rumoured to be considering a move and Kalinic nearly completed a switch to Championship side Aston Villa back in 2016, but was denied a work permit.
Palace did buy themselves a keeper in the summer, with Vicente Guaita arriving from Getafe, but he has failed to impress, and is unable to wrestle the number 1 spot from Wayne Hennessey.
Roy Hodgson's side could be forgiven for looking for a new goalkeeper as they remain in Premier League relegation trouble. The Eagles are currently 16th and are winless in the league since September, when they beat Huddersfield 1-0.
Lovre Kalinić: "Apart from the first match against Spain, we looked very good in all our other matches. We had our chance at Wembley and it is a pity we didn't take it, especially after conceding two goals from set-pieces." #ENGCRO #NationsLeague pic.twitter.com/rYoEDRtlmR— Football 24/7 (@foetball247) November 18, 2018
The Eagle's fixtures do not ease up after the international break however, as their next game is a tough trip to Old Trafford to take on Jose Mourinho's Manchester United.
After the tricky trip to Manchester, the Eagles have a crucial game against Burnley at home, and then away against arch-rivals Brighton.
