Many Crystal Palace fans are reacting to the latest transfer rumours surrounding the club, which suggest that the South London side are interested in Nathan Collins.
According to The Sun and tweeted out by @cpfc_xtra, fellow Premier League sides Burnley and Arsenal are also battling it out for Stoke’s 19-year-old defender. ￼The Championship side will look for more than £10m but an offer in that range could seal the transfer. For now, Palace remain interested and are monitoring the situation. One fan called the player ‘highly-rated’.
The centre-back has featured 24 times in all competitions this campaign for the Potters (WhoScored). He has looked very solid as he has managed one tackle, 1.3 interceptions and 2.5 clearances a game. He has also been a threat in attack as he has scored two goals and has one assist.
With the likes of Gary Cahill, Scott Dann, James Tomkins and Cheikhou Kouyaté all 30 years-old or older, signing Collins would be the ideal acquisition to bring some new blood in at the back.
Here is how Palace fans reacted to the news:
“Highly rated. We need a young cb!”
“In all seriousness, would be a decent signing.”
“Geezer is decent but more than £10m? No thanks”
“RB/CB, been decent for Stoke this season I think but £10m seems a bit steep”
“I think that price will put us off. Definitely fits our bracket though”
“I like this”
