The France Under-21 international has caught the eye of several teams off the back of a strong season in the Eredivisie when he netted 19 goals in 35 appearances.

Swansea City, Tottenham, Sunderland, Aston Villa and Norwich have all previously been linked with Haller, while one report suggests Everton are leading the race for the 22-year-old.

Haller has already rejected a lucrative move to the Far East this summer in the favour of staying in Europe, giving Palace a bit of hope they could potentially persuade him to move to Selhurst Park.

The Eagles are concentrating on trying to land Liverpool striker Benteke for the time being but could firm up their interest in Haller should a deal for the Belgium international fail to come off.
