Arsenal striker Eddie Nketiah is a priority target for Crystal Palace during the January transfer window.
That’s according to reliable reporter Alan Nixon, and, as to be expected, the update has had a number of Eagles fans talking on social media.
How many signings do Palace need in January?
Palace currently have four strikers on the books at Selhurst Park, one of which is Odsonne Edouard, who was brought to the club over the summer.
The 22-year-old is into the final six months of his Emirates deal and has made just three substitute appearances in the Premier League this season. Nketiah has scored five times in three EFL Cup appearances, though.
Palace fans react
@CPFCtransfersHQ shared Nixon’s claim on social media on Monday afternoon.
This is what these Palace supporters had to say in reply, with many not keen to see a move go through and one labelling it as ‘strange’.
“Vieira is down bad for this bloke”
“STOP @CPFC @CEO4TAG (Steve Parish)”
“This made sense before but seems strange now. Can’t see him getting in ahead of Eduoard, Benteke or even Mateta, unless he is (a). going to be played wide (again, we have options there) (b). He is one for the future (Benteke is 31)”
“Pointless we don’t need any more strikers”
“Not even lying when I say he’s worse than Mateta”
“Went on a run and came back to this, I can’t win”
