Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson is reportedly poised to look specifically to recruit players with Premier League experience in January.

The Eagles found business difficult in the summer transfer window, and this has proved to be damaging given their poor start to the season, in which they have failed to even score a goal or pick up a point.

However, according to the Daily Mail, the experienced Palace boss wants to look into signing players with more pedigree in order to spearhead an unlikely survival mission.

Hodgson delivers update on Palace's hunt for a new striker .
Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson has delivered an update on his side’s hunt for a new striker, as quoted by talkSPORT. The Eagles have been on the lookout for a free agent to play up front, having received the news after their 5-0 defeat to Manchester City that Christian Benteke would be ruled out for six weeks with ligament damage. “The search for the rare pearl: a centre-forward out of work and without a club who is good enough to come in and play for Crystal Palace. It’s not impossible, but not something that occupies my working moments.” “I’m thinking about training and working with what we’ve got. But (sporting director) Dougie Freedman and the chairman (Steve Parish) are looking and coming up with ideas.” Palace have been linked with a plethora of free strikers in recent times, but no move has come to fruition. They were cited with interest in Rickie Lambert, who proceeded to retire from playing shortly after. Carlton Cole was another name said to be on Palace’s wish list, but nothing materialised there. Hodgson’s side also moved in for Alberto Gilardino, but he returned to his homeland of Italy to play instead. It looks as though the search is continuing for Palace, who have been using Bakary Sako as a striker in Benteke’s absence.
