Lafont is considered one of Europe's most promising young goalkeepers, with plenty of clubs sniffing around following Toulouse's relegation from Ligue 1 last season. But it's the Eagles who are looking to swoop for the Frenchman, according to L'Equipe, via football.london.
Reports in France had suggested that Arsenal were the front runners for the young Frenchman's signature, but have since decided that they need a more experienced goalkeeper, leaving the door open for Crystal Palace.
Palace themselves are in need of a new 'keeper, with Wayne Hennessey and Julian Speroni both failing to impress sufficiently to hold down the number one shirt in 2017/18. Both goalkeepers are also out of contract this summer, and it appears that Palace are looking to find replacements. The arrival of Vicente Guaita earlier this week will help matters.
Lafont's talent is undoubted and it's easy to see why big European clubs such as Napoli
The 19 year old has already amassed 98 Ligue 1 appearances, and should Palace manage to capture the goalkeeper - who has been tipped as the next Hugo Lloris - they'll have a potential superstar on their hands.
