Edwards, 19, already has 49 first-team appearances for Posh under his belt and Palace see him as one for the future.
They failed earlier in the week with their first offer but have returned with a package that could be worth £7.5million to the League One club.

Edwards was one of only two players in the triumphant Three Lions team who aren’t already registered with Premier League clubs.
Despite his lack of top flight experience, he still started four of England’s five matches at the tournament.
Palace have admired Edwards for some time, and the talented centre back has also been tracked by Tottenham in the past.
