Selhurst Park side chase Spaniard.
Eagles boss Neil Warnock is lining up a move to bring in Swansea City attacker Michu in January according to the Daily Mail.
The 28 year old was sent to Serie A side Napoli on a season long loan deal but Rafa Benitez is ready to call an end to the deal, leaving the door open to a possible Premier League return.
Michu has started just two Serie A fixtures and may well be open to a move to south London, one which could help re-ignite his career.
The cultured attacking midfielder, who can also play in a striking role, made an instant impact in the English top tier as he racked up 22 goals in his debut season in south Wales following his bargain £1.6m move from Rayo Vallecano.
Injuries and inconsistent form has blotted his Swans copybook a tad but his proven Premier League form should surely leave the door open to various prospective suitors in January.
