Several Crystal Palace fans have been discussing the possibility of Bournemouth winger Jordon Ibe joining the club in the summer.
The Eagles were interested in signing the 24-year-old last month, per The Telegraph, and according to the Daily Mirror (via HITC), he could be available for a free transfer in the summer when his contract expires.
It remains to be seen whether Palace are still interested, but fans are still discussing the possibility of signing him nevertheless. A couple of supporters even suggested that he could be a replacement for talisman Wilfried Zaha, which would be quite underwhelming.
Has Roy Hodgson's football become boring to watch?
He scored just one Premier League goal last season and averaged 1.4 dribbles per game (via WhoScored). Zaha, on the other hand, scored 10 times while averaging 3.4 dribbles per game — numbers Ibe cannot compete with.
You can have a look at what Palace supporters have been saying about the former Liverpool man in full below…

Free agent and low wages, I admit he hasn’t been great recently but he wouldn’t be that bad of a squad player.
