[Discussion] Pick a player for your EPL team

With the January transfer window open, it's time for EPL fans to start dreaming of how their teams can improve as they embark on the 2nd half of the season.

And what are sports for if not an outlet for our imaginations? I love crazy transfer scenarios and I think it's well within our rights as fans to dream up something far-fetched.

Crystal Palace need help, there's no question about it.

While they have had an amazing season to this point, they could be doing even better if they had a real striker to get them some goals. Connor Wickham was their signing at the summer, but he has been injured. When he's been healthy, he has worked hard and played well but hasn't been good at getting on the scoresheet. A hard worker, but not a goal scorer.

The other strikers on the squad have similar problems. Dwight Gayle comes up with the very occasional super-sub appearance, but cannot be relied on. Marouane Chamakh is not someone to get excited about, and nor is Frazier Campbell.

Simply put, Palace need a striker.

What about QPR's Charlie Austin?

Austin had a monstruous season last year, single-handedly making QPR a team worth watching. While he couldn't do quite enough to keep Rangers up in the EPL - the team got relegated - his season made him a favorite for many. I was shocked to see him stay at QPR once they got relegated, as I am sure that he has the quality to be a good EPL striker.

What they need is an out-and-out striker, a target man, and Charlie Austin is just that.

I think it's the perfect match. A player too good for the second division meets a team in the first division desperate for someone with his attributes. This could be the move that spurs Palace to that top-6 finish that they are dreaming of.

What do you think? Who would you like to see your team sign in the transfer window?
