Pardew is looking to bring in three home grown players in West Brom’s highly rated striker Saido Berahino, Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Ryan Mason and Queens Park Rangers (QPR) defender Steven Caulker.

The new faces could help Palace to improve on last season where they got off to a running start but fell flat half way through the season.

West Brom’s Berahino is set for an exit from the Hawthorns, after representing the club in 100 league matches, where he scored 23 goals.

The Glaziers are hopeful of signing the 22-year-old striker for a fee in the region of £10 million, but might face competition from premier league rivals Tottenham and Stoke City.

Tottenham’s Mason is also looking for an exit, as he is set to explore opportunities to get more first team football after dropping down the packing order last season due to injuries.

The 24-year-old England international has made 54 league appearances for his club, where he scored two goals during his time at White Hart Lane.

Pardew will hope to land the highly rated midfielder, who is also attracting interest from rivals Bournemouth.

QPR’s Caulker spent last season on loan with two different clubs, first Southampton and then at Liverpool.

Caulker couldn't manage to cement his place in either first XI, and is certain for a return to Loftus Road next season.

Palace are ready to meet Rangers demand of £6.5 million for the 24-year-old, but can face competition from rival clubs in getting the signature of the England international.
