Eagles boss Tony Pulis will look to make big moves in the January transfer market in order to improve his squad to aid Crystal Palace’s fight against an immediate return to the Championship according to the Daily Telegraph.

The South London club’s lack of goals appears to be the ‘problem area’ that Pulis will look to address, which is perhaps no surprise given his side have managed just 13 goals in 20 Premier League fixtures, the lowest total in the division.
To this end Pulis wants to bring in Everton striker Nikica Jelavic with the Croatian international perhaps interested in such a switch as it would provide him with the regular first team football he needs ahead of the 2014 World Cup finals in the summer.
Palace are ready to offer £3.5m for the former Rangers man, who scored twice in a recent FA Cup clash with QPR.
Tony Pulis will also look to bring in Blackpool starlet Tom Ince, a move that could perhaps prove more tricky to pull off.
The England Under 21 international is out of contract in the summer and may elect to see out his current deal so as to be in a position to sign a lucrative deal with sides who would only have to a pay a nominal compensation fee for his services.
Pulis has done an excellent job since taking over from Ian Holloway, guiding Palace to three wins and a draw in his past seven Premier League matches in charge.
