Crystal Palace have joined the race for Bundesliga forward Max Kruse, according to reports.

The Werder Bremen forward has been linked with a summer move to the Premier League in recent times, with Tottenham Hotspur reportedly keen, however new reports are linking the Eagles with a fresh approach.

The London club are, according to Calciomercato, keen on tying up a summer deal for the experienced German, whose long-term future in the German top flight has come under scrutiny.

Kruse has scored 10 goals and assisted nine in 28 Bundesliga appearances this season, and would be considered a solid signing by a number of clubs across the continent.

With Kruse’s contract set to expire this summer, the Germany international appears destined to move to greener pastures.

Palace’s interest likely relates to recent reports that their chances of signing Chelsea loan striker Michy Batshuayi on a permanent basis next summer are slim.
