Crystal Palace are reportedly pushing to bring in Arsenal forward Eddie Nketiah as Patrick Vieira eyes striking reinforcements, according to Sky Sports.
Playing his part last term, the 22-year-old managed to notch seven goal contributions in 29 appearances for the Gunners with six goals and one assist [Transfermarkt].
In the last moments of the transfer window, he could now be set to swap north London for SE25 as the Eagles eye further attacking depth.
Would Nketiah be a good signing for Palace?
Crystal Palace are keen on the striker and have been embroiled in discussions over a fee, although no such breakthrough has come to light as of yet due to disparities in the clubs’ respective valuations of Nketiah [Sky Sports]. An unnamed German club are also mooted to be in the hunt for his services.
In light of this news, plenty of Crystal Palace diehards took to Twitter to discuss the links with the Arsenal marksman.
Crystal Palace fans react
Replying to multiple outlets on Twitter, here is what some Palace fans had to say about the “interesting” possibility of the Eagles signing Nketiah:
“Please get it done”
“If I had to bet on which striker we’d end up with, I think it would be him…”
