Crystal Palace eye Saman Ghoddos transfer but face competition from West Ham, Southampton, West Brom and Brighton for Ostersund striker

Ghoddos

Mirror.co.uk - The Swedish-born Iranian striker, 24, impressed in his side's Europa League last-32 tie against Arsenal.

Crystal Palace have joined the race for Ostersund striker Saman Ghoddos.

Ghoddos, 24, is on the radar of a number of English clubs after impressing in the Swedish side’s Europa League last-32 tie against Arsenal.

West Ham, Southampton, West Brom and Brighton are also eyeing the Iranian frontman.

Ghoddos will cost in excess of £5m after Ostersund rejected a January bid of that value from Celta Vigo.

It comes a couple of weeks after Palace signed goalkeeper Diego Cavalieri.

The former Liverpool stopper, 35, was a free agent after being released by Fluminense in his native Brazil at the end of the 2017 season.

He links up with Roy Hodgson once again having previously worked briefly under the Palace manager at Liverpool in 2010.

Cavalieri, capped three times by Brazil, will provide backup for Wayne Hennessey while Julian Speroni remains on the sidelines with a knee injury.
