Pulis' preferred option is thought to be Burnley's Sam Vokes, who looks set to leave Turf Moor this summer.

Crouch has made over 700 career appearances, netting 200 times in a career that has seen him represent the likes of Liverpool, Tottenham and Aston Villa.
His experience - and ability to offer a different attacking dimension - could prove attractive to Pulis.
