The uncapped Frenchman, 26, has blitzed the Premier League since the turn of the year – with many clubs now eyeing him.

Mateta has notched 13 goals and four assists in 34 top-flight games for Palace this term.

His former club, QPR, would benefit from any deal as they have a sell-on fee built into his Palace contract.

Palace’s owners are thought to be keen to ensure at least one of the three remains at the club.

But if massive offers come in they could be forced to reconsider.

Losing all three would infuriate manager Oliver Glasner, who has worked wonders since arriving at the club to replace Roy Hodgson.

He’s already made it clear – publicly – he wants to retain his best players, not look to replace them.
