Crystal Palace are close to completing the loan signing of French striker Yaya Sanogo from Arsenal.

Sky sources report that Sanogo was at Palace's training ground on Monday to discuss the switch. 

The 21-year-old has also been linked with a move to France after failing to break into the Arsenal first team this season.

Gunners manager Arsene Wenger has said he woud like Sanogo to gain experience with a Premier League side as opposed to a club in France, and new Palace boss Alan Pardew is hopeful of making him his first new arrival since he took over at Selhurst Park last week.

Sanogo joined Arsenal on a free transfer from Auxerre in 2013, but has just one goal to his name in eight starts - against Dortmund in a 2-0 Champions League win in November.
