Many Crystal Palace fans have been reacting to the latest transfer rumours which have linked the South London side with a move for striker Kaspar Junker.
According to a report by TEAMtalk, which was tweeted out by @cpfc_xtra, Crystal Palace, West Brom, Swansea, Middlesbrough and Bristol City are ready to make a move for Danish striker Junker. Celtic and Derby have also been monitoring the 26-year-old.
In his whole career, the player has managed 164 appearances, scoring 56 goals and picking up 25 assists (Transfermarkt). He is in great form this campaign as he has played 27 games and has picked up 25 goals and ten assists.
Despite this good record, the reaction to the link from the fan base has been mixed, with one calling him ‘Sorloth V2’. The worry is understandable as the club picked up an unknown Alexander Sorloth in the past and the forward was a flop as he only managed one goal during his spell in South London (Transfermarkt).
The possible transfer does seem like a bit of a risk and it might be better if the club go for a more proven forward if they look to acquire one in January.
Here is how Palace fans reacted to Junker being linked:
Bounce Wickham and Bats and get him I say

Looking at the speculated competition for him doesn’t make me hopeful of his quality. Hope I’m wrong if we do get him.
