A number of Crystal Palace supporters have been giving their thoughts to a transfer update regarding Marseille star Florian Thauvin.
Reports from France (cited by Inside Futbol) earlier this month claimed that the Eagles, along with Leicester City, had made contact with the 28-year-old ahead of a potential summer move.
The Sun exclusively reported on Sunday that Palace are keen to sign the World Cup winner as part of their summer rebuild, but they face serious competition from AC Milan.
The Italian giants could offer big money for the winger in a pre-contract agreement, but the £91,000-a-week Thauvin is believed to be interested in a return to the Premier League.
Palace’s first choice wide addition is Watford’s Ismaila Sarr, but with the Hornets closing in on an immediate return to the top flight, his price tag could increase.

“Freedman will think he can convince him to play in Croydon over Milan”
“Congrats AC Milan for signing Florian Thauvin”
“I’m still baffled why “Florian Thauvin” and “Crystal Palace” are being mentioned in the same sentence”
