The Spanish winger wants to leave the club after they were relegated from the Premier League last season, and according to the Daily Express, the Eagles and Serie A side AC Milan are vying to land the winger, who currently has a valuation of £15m.

The 26-year-old has a wealth of experience in England and the Premier League for both Watford and Everton as he has played in 145 games for both clubs, scoring 25 goals whilst providing 30 assists, per Transfermarkt. The former Barcelona attacker suffered a bad cruciate ligament injury in the spring but is due to be back in action soon.
Before his injury, he was a significant attacking threat for the Hornets last season as he averaged 2.3 shots, 1.6 key passes and 2.2 successful dribbles per game, via WhoScored.
His experience in the Premier League, combined with his attacking threat, would make him a very good addition for the Eagles, especially for a price of around £15m.
Here is what these Crystal Palace fans said following the reports linking them with Deulofeu:

He would only come to us if he failed the medical at Milan, and as we don’t bother with them he could join the gang in the treatment room.
Had the same injury as Bolasie and Salako and similarly reliant on speed.
