Crystal Palace have agreed a fee of £16million plus add-ons for Hull City’s Jarrod Bowen.
The 23-year-old has been tracked by a host of Premier League clubs this month but Palace are now favourites to land the 17-goal forward.
Bowen’s contract at Hull expires this summer but the Championship club have an option of an extra year.

They have offered him a new deal on improved terms this month but it is thought the player would prefer to move on, be that now or at the end of the season.
Newcastle have been weighing up an offer but boss Steve Bruce – who took Bowen to Hull in 2014 – suspects his former club would be difficult to deal with.
That has left the door open for Palace and it is understood they have now agreed a deal that could see Bowen move to Selhurst Park before Friday’s transfer deadline.
