Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard is currently undergoing medical examination before moving to Crystal Palace.
The costs are estimated at around £ 14million, while they could reach £ 18.5million against Paris Saint-Germain due to a significant sell clause in the deal.
Sky Sports News reported on Monday that Palace turned their attention to Edward after refusing to match Arsenal’s assessment for Eddie Nketiah.
Palace and Arsenal were far apart in their assessment for the 22-year-old, with the Eagles keen to sign a striker before Tuesday’s 11pm deadline.
Edward, who started the season with two goals in four Scottish Premiership games for Celtic, is now Palace’s preferred choice.
The 23-year-old rose through the ranks of the PSG academy and moved permanently to Celtic in 2018 after a club loan.
His arrival at Palace would close a busy transfer window, with Marc Guehi, Joachim Andersen, Conor Gallagher, Michael Olise and Will Hughes all new additions to Patrick Vieira’s squad.
