Skysports.com understands Crystal Palace are lining up a bid to sign Hereford United's in-form striker Mathieu Manset.
The French youngster has been tracked by a string of Championship clubs, including Reading, after scoring six goals in as many appearances.
He has netted 13 times in total for Hereford this season and his form could earn the 21-year-old a move before the close of the transfer window.
Palace are looking to improve their squad in the battle to avoid relegation and are preparing to make an offer for Manset.
Any deal could see Manset follow Lennie Lawrence to Selhurst Park after the former Hereford technical director took on the role of Dougie Freedman's assistant at Palace this week.
