Crystal Palace manager Pulis targets Danish giant Makienok and Stoke striker Crouch in January

New Crystal Palace manager Tony Pulis seems to determined to land himself a lanky striker – with Danish giant Simon Makienok and English star Peter Crouch on his wishlist, according to The Mirror.

Pulis could be set to raid his former club Stoke in the hopes of taking Crouch to Selhurst Park, but has identified Brondby striker Simon Makienok as an alternative option should he fall short in his efforts to land the former England star.

The 23-year-old, 6ft 7in striker was on the Eagles’ radar before Ian Holloway departed the club in October, and Pulis seems to have continued his new club’s interest in doing business with the same club that sold fellow Danish giant Peter Schmeichel to Man United in 1991.

Per Rud, director at Brondby, confirmed English interest in the striker, saying: “There is attention from England. It depends on what is put on the table and whether the offer interests Simon.”

Pulis remains keen to a reunion with Crouch in January, however, as Palace seek to get themselves out of the relegation. They are in the bottom three only based on goal difference, and sit five points ahead of bottom club Sunderland.

Pulis has reportedly been assured that funds will be made available in January for Palace to continue in their quest for their first ever Premier League survival, and new sporting director Iain Moody has also identified Filip Djordjevic as another alternative should neither of these deals materialise.
