Crystal Palace have made a £9.5m bid to sign Inter Milan striker Eder, according to reports.

Eder, who is struggling for game time at the San Siro, will be pushed further down the pecking order if the Serie A giants sign Liverpool outcast Daniel Sturridge.

The England forward wants more first-team minutes to resurrect his World Cup hopes – and if Inter Milan bring him in on a permanent or loan deal – it would open the exit door for Italy international Eder.

Italian publication Corriere dello Sport says Palace want the 31-year-old to boost their attacking options.

Eagles boss Roy Hodgson is relying on Christian Benteke, who has scored just once all season.
