CRYSTAL PALACE are reportedly in talks over a £50million double swoop for Ismaila Sarr and Florinel Coman.
The Eagles are desperate to strengthen their attack after mustering just 31 goals between them in 38 Premier League matches.
As Sun Sport revealed last week, Watford will sell Sarr for £40million to help ease the financial pain of relegation.
The Senegalese winger, 22, is being offered to several clubs at the huge fee to create an auction.
Palace are willing to meet that figure to bring in the star, even if they decide to keep Wilfried Zaha.
And discussions between the Selhurst Park and Vicarage Road outfits have already begun.
Now reports in Romania claim Palace have also made progress in their pursuit of FCSB ace Coman.
The 22-year-old striker’s agent is allegedly in London to thrash out terms with the Eagles.
A figure of up to £11m has been suggested.
Coman has scored 27 goals and provided 21 assists during 78 matches during the last two seasons.
And his legendary countryman Gheorghe Hagi has even compared the hotshot to PSG’s Kylian Mbappe.
Palace are hoping to help fund the double deals by flogging Christian Benteke.
The £120,000-a-week striker has scored just six league goals over the past three campaigns.
Roy Hodgson is now looking to sell him for around £8m in order to help bolster his goal-shy side, according to the Daily Mail.
