Crystal Palace plan second bid for Brentford striker Ollie Watkins

Crystal Palace remain in the hunt for Brentford striker Ollie Watkins.

Palace are expected to make a second attempt to land Watkins, says the Mirror.

An £11million bid was rejected, but boss Roy Hodgson needs to add to his attack and Palace will up their offer for Watkins, who scored 12 times last season.

Palace are also interested in Watkins' team-mate Neal Maupay.

The striker, who has been linked with palace's rivals Brighton, has been left out of pre-season preparations because of uncertainty over his future.
