Palace are believed to be leading the race for Rincon’s signature, with Alan Pardew’s men looking for a replacement for Mile Jedinak, who they sold to Aston Villa.
However, the Selhurst Park side will not have all their own way when trying to sign the former Hamburg star, with their domestic rivals also interested in him as the transfer window counts down its final hours.

A potential fee in the region of €8 million (£6.8 million) is being touted for the Venezuela international, but it remains to be seen just which Premier League club the all-action midfielder will end up at.
