TEAMtalk can reveal Crystal Palace are in talks with West Ham United about landing winger Michail Antonio.

Winger Antonio has been told by the Hammers that he is not in the long-term plans of new boss Manuel Pellegrini and the London club are now listening to offers.

Palace have been tracking Antonio’s situation and have now made a move for the 28-year-old, although they are aware there is interest from a number of other Premier League clubs including Newcastle, Wolves and Bournemouth.

London-born Antonio is under contract until 2021 having extended his deal last May. He played just 22 times last season, scoring three goals, due to calf and hamstring problems.

Antonio joined the Hammers from Nottingham Forest in 2015 and has scored 20 goals in 76 Premier League appearances for West Ham.
