Though last season was far from enjoyable for the Crystal Palace fans in the Transfer Tavern, the Eagles propping up our bar are excited about next season.
The arrival of Frank De Boer as the club’s new boss has sparked optimism amongst our locals from south east London, who believe the Dutchman can impose a stylish footballing philosophy at Selhurst Park.
Indeed, the signings of Ruben Loftus-Cheek and the seemingly imminent one of Jairo Riedewald from Ajax have our Palace fans waxing poetic about how they’ll line up next term.
In fact, another player could be on the way. According to Jim White on talkSPORT (via the Daily Express), Arsenal and England defender Calum Chambers is a £20m target this summer, as the club reportedly look to bring the 22-year-old south of the River Thames.
A promising player no doubt, though the former Southampton man has struggled to embark on the upward trajectory he set himself on during his breakthrough on the south coast. So, for that kind of fee, the potential deal has sparked debate.
With that in mind, here’s a look at how Palace fans reacted on Twitter.
Ok just putting this out here why would we pay 20 million for chambers and not 25-30 million for sakho .. #CPFC

I'd be happy with Chambers, he's a good young player, but for 20mill, surely we could just pay Liverpool an extra 10 and get Sakho? #cpfc

Why does anyone care about the amount of money we spend? I'd take Callum Chambers. Another young CB with PL expierence. #cpfc

Not over the moon about the Calum Chambers rumour. 20mill… add another 10 and you get Sakho #cpfc
