Premier League side Crystal Palace are interested in signing Algerian international midfielder Nabil Bentaleb, according to German media outlet Fussball.
Bentaleb is keen on a return to London after a stint with Tottenham under Mauricio Pochettino, however the Eagles face competition from German, French and Italian clubs.
The central midfielder has not kicked a ball all season with Schalke, but Roy Hodgson is reportedly very keen to sign the 25-year-old. He is resuming full training after undergoing major surgery in the summer.
