Crystal Palace are reportedly considering a move for experienced Italian striker Alberto Gilardino.
The Eagles are rock bottom of the Premier League table entering the October international break - losing all seven of their league games this season without scoring a single goal.
Christian Benteke's absence with a knee problem meant that Bakary Sako had to lead the line against Manchester United at the weekend, and the 29-year-old struggled to make his mark in the 4-0 defeat at Old Trafford.
According to ESPN, Palace are exploring the possibility of signing 35-year-old Gilardino, who has been a free agent since leaving Pescara at the end of the 2016-17 campaign.
Gilardino, who won the 2007 Champions League with AC Milan, scored 19 times in 57 appearances for the Italian national team between 2004 and 2013.
