The Belgian striker has scored eight goals for Palace since his £30m move but may be forced out of the club in order to raise funds for other targets

Palace are said to be reluctant to sell the Belgian striker, who has scored eight goals in his 18 Premier League appearances this season, though it may be necessary if Allardyce pursues other targets as Norwich's Robbie Brady and Leicester's Jeffrey Schlupp.
