SUNDERLAND goal hero Connor Wickham has emerged as a transfer target for Crystal Palace.

The in-form frontman has caught the eye with five goals in his last three games to shoot the Black Cats towards Premier League safety.

However, he only has a year left on his contract, and as a result is being watched by a few clubs.

And the Daily Mirror has reported that Tony Pulis has told Crystal Palace he wants £30m to take the club to the next level, with Sunderland forward Wickham, 21, and Stoke midfielder Steven N’Zonzi, 25, among his targets.

Elsewhere, the Mirror says that Southampton midfielder Adam Lallana, 25, is set to become the first piece in Liverpool’s Champions League jigsaw next season despite interest from Chelsea and Manchester United.

Lallana was named in the PFA Premier League Team of the Year
