Ismaila Sarr missed Watford’s 1-1 draw with Birmingham as speculation about his future at the club grows.
Following their relegation from the Premier League last season, the Senegal international has been linked with a move away from Vicarage Road.
Sarr has been with Watford since 2019.
Crystal Palace are hoping to complete a deal to sign the forward before the end of the month, according to The Athletic.
The Eagles have been working on a deal for several weeks, with negotiations taking place behind the scenes.
Dougie Freedman, Palace’s sporting director, was in attendance at St Andrew’s for the Championship match, but he never got to see his man in action, as Sarr was left out as a precaution due to a hamstring injury.
Currently, no agreement has been reached, with Watford claiming that no offer has been received.
Palace has long admired Sarr and has followed his progress since his arrival in England.
In 95 appearances since joining Watford, the 25-year-old has scored 25 goals and provided 19 assists.
