Arsenal reserve forward Rui Fonte would welcome a move to Crystal Palace, according to his brother Jose, who is on the books at Selhurst Park.
Palace boss Neil Warnock is considering a loan swoop and defender Jose thinks his younger sibling would make the switch if the Eagles boss came knocking.
Striker Rui is only a fringe player at Emirates Stadium and could do with getting some first-team football under his belt.
The elder Fonte told the Croydon Advertiser: "If Rui can come to Palace that would be a great thing for me and my brother.
"He is a very good player and he needs to play first-team football - not reserve football.
"I think he is prepared to do that - but we will see what happens. If he came to play for us it would be great."
