Palace boss Ian Holloway is preparing to make the Morocco striker his sixth new signing of the summer.

And a deal is expected in the next few days, according to Sky sources, although the structure of the deal is still the subject of discussion.

Chamakh, who has not played a Premier League game for Arsenal since May 2012, and had an unsuccessful loan spell at West Ham last season, is expected to move permanently on an initial one-year contract.

Stephen Dobbie, Jerome Thomas, Jose Campana and Elliot Grandin have also arrived, while Kevin Phillips has re-signed for a further year.
