Crystal Palace to make improved £4.5m bid for Swansea’s Neil Taylor

• Club had £3m offer rejected last week
• Welsh side lining up Norwich’s Martin Olsson as replacement
• Bafétimbi Gomis puts future in doubt despite recent starts

Crystal Palace are to lodge an improved bid of around £4.5m for Neil Taylor at Swansea City, with the Welsh club having lined up Norwich’s Martin Olsson as a potential replacement.

Palace have targeted the signing of a left-back this month having utilised Joel Ward and Martin Kelly – both natural right-backs – in the role to date this term. The London club signed Zeki Fryers from Tottenham Hotspur on transfer deadline day in September in the hope he might make the position his own, but he has failed to impress and has since been loaned to Rotherham United in the Championship.
