Milivojevic has scored six goals in 17 Greek Super League appearances this season, with Olympiacos 13 points clear at the summit.
He enters a sharply contrasting situation at Palace, who ended a run of eight Premier League matches without a win with a 2-0 victory away to Bournemouth on Tuesday.
Milivojevic is Allardyce’s third major signing of the January transfer window, following the arrival of Jeffrey Schlupp from Leicester City and Patrick van Aanholt from Sunderland.
