Edouard is willing to see out his contract if he fails to get the move he wants but Celtic have been holding out for their £20m valuation as they owe a 40 percent sell-on to his previous club, Paris St Germain.
Edouard saw a move to Leicester City fall through earlier in the window as Celtic dug their heels in over their asking price.
Leicester moved on to sign Patson Daka and are looking to add Ademola Lookman from Red Bull Leipzig, another Palace target.
Palace have been trying to bring in three new players before the deadline with a forward and winger their priorities.

They have also enquired about former Chelsea winger Jeremie Boga at Sassuolo and Orlando City forward Daryl Dike.
New boss Patrick Vieira has seen his side fail to score in three of their four matches so far this season.
