Eagles target French star

The 18-year-old has just broken into the Marseille first-team and is catching the eye with the kind of performances that have seen him likened to Samir Nasri.

Lopez is also said to be on the radar of Arsenal and Liverpool, but reports in the press claim that Palace hope to pull off a coupe by nipping in to take the youngster to Selhurst Park.

However the Eagles will face a battle to lure Lopez away from Marseille, who are keen to keep hold of their starlet and are no longer under pressure to sell.

The French side were in financial turmoil, which resulted in a number of key players being sold. However that is no longer the case following a takeover and they may refuse to sell Lopez no matter how hard Palace try.
