Crystal Palace remain in talks over a deal for striker Khouma Babacar, with Fiorentina asking for £15m for the Senegal international, Sky Sports News understands.
Eagles boss Roy Hodgson wants to add another striker to his squad this month and is also interested in the Celtic forward Moussa Dembele.
Babacar - a 24-year-old who has scored four times in Serie A this season after netting 10 last year - has also been watched by West Ham and West Brom.
Sky in Italy believe Palace have already made a bid for the striker, who signed for Fiorentina from Pescara as a youth player in 2008.
Dembele, meanwhile, is of interest to a number of Premier League clubs this month, including Brighton.
The 21-year-old has two and half years left on his contract at Celtic and would cost in the region of £20m.
Dembele has scored 40 goals since signing from Fulham in 2016 and was once a target for Tottenham.
