Crystal Palace have opened negotiations with Red Bull Salzburg over a move for striker Moanes Dabbur, according to reports.

It was recently claimed by Estadio Deportivo that the Eagles would have to fight off interest from Sevilla and Real Betis if the club chose to launch a bid for Dabbur this summer, with reports at the time loosely claiming that Palace were close to signing the Israel international.

But the Daily Mail have confirmed that talks between Crystal Palace and RB Salzburg are already underway, with manager Roy Hodgson desperate to add some more firepower to his side ahead of the new season.

The new league campaign is Austria has already started and Dabbur has maintained his stellar form from last year, scoring three times in their opening two matches, as well as in the domestic cup.

Dabbur first caught the eye of scouts at Selhurst Park when he returned from a loan spell with Swiss side Grasshoppers in 2017. 

During his first full season in the Austrian Bundesliga, the Israeli striker scored 29 goals across all competitions during the club's impressive campaign.

The 26-year-old found the back of the net five times during their Europa League campaign before Salzburg were cruelly knocked out by Marseille in the semi finals, which included strikes against Real Sociedad and SS Lazio.

Crystal Palace, who recently secured the impressive capture of Max Meyer, will put everything they have into making Dabbur their fourth signing of the summer, so long as it doesn't risk the future of in-demand winger Wilfried Zaha.
