Roy Hodgson has the services of summer signing Jordan Ayew, Christian Benteke and Connor Wickham as the three strikers in his Crystal Palace squad.

Wickham and Benteke have struggled for regular minutes and have collectively scored two goals in all competitions since the start of last season. The duo’s contracts at Selhurst Park expire in 2021.

Earlier reports from Italy have talked about interest in Inter Milan’s Gabriel Barbosa, who is likely to join Flamengo on a permanent deal, unless a big European club shows up.
