A lot of Crystal Palace fans are reacting to the news that West Ham right-back Jeremy Ngakia is a target for the Eagles in the summer.
ExWHUemployee was speaking on the West Ham Way podcast and has claimed that Palace are not the only club interested as fellow Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur are also keeping tabs on the Irons youngster.
Would Ngakia be a good signing?
Ngakia has only played four times for the Hammers in the Premier League, but he looked to have impressed in his 360 minutes of top flight football, per Transfermarkt, as before football was postponed, he was the number one choice right back at the London Stadium.
However the 19 year-old refused to accept a new contract and is set to become a free agent, and with Palace only having one recognised right-back currently, it could be a real clever addition to the squad.
The Eagles have also been linked with Nathan Ferguson, a young defender who will also be a free agent this summer from West Brom, so it will be interesting to see if the South London side try to sign both or just one.
Fans seemed split on hearing the news, with some understandably liking the idea of getting Ngakia, whilst others would prefer Ferguson. Here is what some had to say…

He has looked really good and comfortable in the games he has played, would like this.
