Crystal Palace want to sign Tammy Abraham on loan.

The Chelsea striker scored just eight goals last season during a loan spell with Swansea, which ended in relegation.

The Eagles are likely to sell Christian Benteke this summer after his disappointing season at Selhurst Park.

The Belgium international netted three times as Palace finished 11th - and boss Roy Hodgson has lost patience with him.

Abraham, who scored 26 goals for Championship club Bristol City in the 2016/17 campaign, could provide a much-needed goal threat for Palace.

January signing Alexander Sorloth is yet to score for the club, while injury-hit Connor Wickham hasn't played a competitive game since November 2016.

Palace would have a good chance of landing Abraham after Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek’s successful loan in SE25 last term.
