Fabrizio Romano has claimed that Crystal Palace and West Ham are interested in signing Arsenal striker Eddie Nketiah this summer.
And a number of Palace fans have been sharing their frustration at the links on social media.
Transfer expert Romano was replying to a post from @ZRAFC, where they relayed Romano’s claim on the 22-year-old’s future.
Nketiah still has 12 months left on his Emirates deal but is expected to leave the Gunners this summer. Palace, West Ham and Bayer Leverkusen are just three sides all keen on the forward, who has scored 16 goals in 17 England Under-21 appearances.
New Palace boss Patrick Vieira has strong Arsenal connections, so should the Eagles firm up their interst, his Selhurst Park arrival could sway a move in Palace’s favour.
Would you take Nketiah at Selhurst Park?
Yes, a smart move!
No, can do better!
Palace fans react
Romano’s reply to @ZRAFC got the attention of numerous Palace fans, but not for the right reasons. This is what some had to say in reply, with one reacting to @CPFCtransfersHQ, blaming chairman Steve Parish.
“Steve Parish killing the club”
“If we are going to go for a striker at least go for someone good”
“Let West Ham win this one please”
