Despite suffering relegation from The Premiership, The Eagles are wasting little time in bolstering their squad.
Ward has been chased by a number of clubs but Palace are understood to have agreed terms with Millwall on a deal which could be worth up to £1.5 million for The Lions.
McAnuff is set to join in a deal worth £450,000 from Cardiff City.
The Jamaican looks set to replace Wayne Routledge on the right wing - who in-turn seems almost certain to sign for Tottenham in the next few weeks.
Palace chief Simon Jordan has already stated he wants Palace to win The Championship next season and he is now providing the funds to try and build a team capable of doing it.
