  • Manchester United, West Ham, Newcastle and Aston Villa are also interested


Crystal Palace have joined the race to sign Marseille midfielder Boubacar Kamara in the summer.

The 22-year-old, who becomes a free agent at the end of the season, has already been attracting interest from the likes of West Ham United and Newcastle United.

Aston Villa and even Manchester United are monitoring the situation, therefore they’ll be a fight for his signature, although his wage demands could price certain teams out.

The midfielder’s salary demands are huge but the Eagles’ ambitious backer John Textor is ready to splash the cash to build on a good campaign under boss Patrick Vieira, according to the Sun.

The Eagles are also targeting Ajax star Edson Alvarez as they look to bolster their options in midfield.

The 24-year-old Mexican is the first choice target, but his hefty £30 million price tag, is expected to deter the south London outfit.

Patrick Vieira’s men moved up to 10th in the Premier League with an impressive 2-0 victory over Wolves on Saturday.

Jean-Philippe Mateta’s close-range strike and Wilfried Zaha’s penalty had them in cruise control by the 34th minute, and that really shouldn’t have been the last of their entries on the scoresheet.

The victory means they have completed the double over Wolves this campaign, a team very much still in the hunt for a spot in Europe.

The former Arsenal midfielder was full of praise for his side although he felt they could have won even more comfortably.

‘I loved every single part of the game,’ Vieira said.

‘We played well in the first half. In the second, we were tired and defended well when we needed to. It was a really good team performance.

‘The first half was one of the best [performances of the season]. Everything is not perfect because we didn’t take the chances we created. We created enough chances to score more.

‘The first half was positive because we knew we couldn’t maintain that for the whole game because we knew Wolves would put more pressure on us.

‘We remained calm and composed and we played with a lot of confidence.’
