Favre has managed the likes of Hertha Berlin, Borussia Monchengladbach, Nice and Borussia Dortmund.

And according to The Sun, he is keen on plying his trade in the Premier League.

The widely-respected coach is similar to Hodgson in many ways, added the outlet.

He has the ability to work in several countries and organise teams in various leagues.

Palace owner Parish has apparently pulled out of the chase for ex-Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo.

And he has also ended interest in coaches short-listed in domestic football such as Steve Cooper, Valerian Ismael and Frank Lampard.

Favre is a free agent and would not cost any compensation.

He also takes a small backroom staff with him which would suit Palace, added the report.
