Palace move to trump Cardiff for Montero

Crystal Palace are chasing Ecuador winger Jefferson Montero.

The Mirror says Palace boss Ian Holloway has his sights on beating fellow top-flight new boys ­Cardiff City to the signature of Montero, the Ecuadorian winger who plays for Mexican club Morelia.

The Bluebirds' offer of £3million does not match Morelia's valuation and Palace are hoping to now take advantage of the stalemate to make a move.

The 23-year-old has ­European experience with Villarreal, Levante and Real Betis and ­Holloway has identified him as the ­replacement for Wilfried Zaha.
