Many Crystal Palace fans are reacting to the latest transfer rumour which suggests that the south London side are interested in defender Radu Dragusin.
The 6 ft 3 centre-back currently plays at Serie A giants Juventus, but has only played 22 minutes of football this season (WhoScored). However with him only being 19 years-old, his lack of game-time is understandable, and the mere fact of him being involved in the senior squad suggests that he is a player for the future.
He has four appearances for the U19 Romanian side (Transfermarkt) and he could be an ideal acquisition for Palace. It might be a risk due to his lack of football this campaign, but the Eagles have an ageing defence and it is starting to show as they have conceded the second-most goals in the division. A revamp is needed at the back, and Dragusin could help start the rebuild.
Here is how Palace fans reacted to the rumours:
“Finally a defender”
“That’s not happening”
“He turned 19 a few weeks ago and he plays for Juventus where can we go wrong with this”
“Can see it being true tbh. Sort of signing we need to be making so I’m all for it”
“If he applies himself well, in a decade’s time Roy might even give him a sub appearance…”
“Yeah ok course we have LOLZ”
“Decent, young as well which is what we need”
“Go for it young promising cb I hope we get him”
