Leicester and Newcastle are among the other Premier League clubs who are thought to hold an interest in the striker.

Ings has played 14 times in three years for Liverpool are suffering a number of long-term injuries after his switch from Burnley in 2015.

The English striker would become the third big-money signing from Liverpool for Palace, following Christian Benteke and Mamadou Sakho.
