Crystal Palace believe the answer to their goalscoring woes lay in Scotland.

The Eagles have identified Celtic forward Odsonne Edouard and Rangers Alfredo Morelos as January targets according to reports.

Roy Hodgson has made no secret of his desire to strengthen his front line with Jordan Ayew, Christian Benteke and Conor Wickham failing to produce this season with just four goals between them.

Edouard has netted 12 goals and 12 assists for the Hoops this term and it’s thought it’d take close to treble the £9million Celtic paid PSG for Palace to land the forward.

Celtic boss Neil Lennon said there was ‘no chance’ of Edouard leaving in January but according to ex-goalkeeper Paul Robinson, every player has their price.

"I think when there’s that kind of money being bandied around, Rangers and Celtic have to look at that,” he told Football Insider.

“Historically players in the Scottish Premier League, their heads are turned when the Premier League comes knocking as you don’t get many opportunities to play in the Premier League.

“It’s a decent figure but I expect Celtic will want more for him and if it something Palace are looking at, then they’ll have to pay a little bit more, I think.”

The 21-year-old has represented France U21s and got on the score sheet in back to back games for Les Bleus over the international break.

Rangers will be equally as enthusiastic in keeping their forward Morelos at Ibrox beyond January too.

The marksman has scored a staggering 22 goals in 26 games this season and has caught the eye of the Palace hierarchy.

Despite his scintillating form, former forward Chris Sutton believes he still needs to prove himself.

“I think he needs to do it for longer,” he told the Daily Record.

“This season I feel he really has matured disciplinary-wise and is keeping himself on the pitch.

"We're seeing a different Morelos this season and fair play to him.

“He probably needs to do it over a longer period of time though."
