Crystal Palace look set to make Motherwell striker Louis Moult their first January signing, according to the Sun.

The 24-year-old has been in fine goalscoring form this season, netting 11 goals in 18 appearances for the Scottish Premiership side.

Palace manager Sam Allardyce is reportedly a fan of Moult and is lining up a £500,000 move for the 6ft striker.

The Stoke academy product made his Premier League debut aged 18 but that was his only appearance for the Potters and he was later dropped to non-league, playing for Nuneaton and Wrexham.

Moult signed for Motherwell last summer for a fee of £125,000 after impressing in the lower divisions and has since scored 24 times in 54 matches.

Palace have been heavily linked with players since the transfer window opened and will be hoping they can strengthen their squad before their next league game against West Ham United on January 14.

Allardyce is expected to splash the cash this month in an attempt to move the Eagles up the Premier League table.
