Crystal Palace boss Tony Pulis is eyeing Everton striker Nikica Jelavic.

The Daily Mail says Everton manager Roberto Martinez will not sell Jelavic until he has found a replacement as Arouna Kone is a long way off fitness following knee surgery.

Hull, West Ham and Stoke are also keen on Croatian Jelavic despite the fact he has not scored for his club since March. The 28-year-old knows he needs to play to have a chance of making Croatia's World Cup squad.
