Palace line up move for Championship duo
The Eagles are understood to be keen on QPR midfielder Joey Barton and Reading winger Jimmy Kebe, who would cost around £750,000.
Former Blackpool boss Ian Holloway, who now manages the newly promoted side, wants to add some Premier League experience to his squad and Barton and Kebe have that between them.
Barton would come in to bring the team together and Kebe, who is 29, has bags of pace and scored goals last season for Reading.
The manager has admitted that acquiring the right player for his squad is becoming very stressful.
Since returning from his loan spell at Marseille, 30-year-old Joey Barton has impressed but is available for around £3 million. However, fellow target Peter Odemwingie looks set to join Swansea City as the transfer deal gather pace.
