Many Crystal Palace fans have responded on Twitter to claims that the club are looking to bring back Alexander Sorloth.
Fan account @CPFC_NEWS_HQ has tweeted about a story – which allegedly comes from Turkish outlet Fotospor – about an extraordinary sounding deal which could see Christian Benteke go to Trabzonspor.
Has Jordan Ayew surprised you this season?
The tweet states that the Eagles want Sorloth back and are willing to offer Christian Benteke as bait for getting him back.
While Sorloth has been having a good time in Turkey, it is very difficult to imagine there being truth in this story given the wages that Benteke is on (via Spotrac) and also the need for a proven striker at the club, which the Norwegian isn’t quite yet.
The former FC Midtjylland man has failed to find the back of the net for Crystal Palace in the Premier League.
Christian Benteke has recently come out and spoken about how he wants to stay at the club, so it would be a bit of a surprise to say the least if there was a huge U-turn which would see him move to Turkey.
Many of the south London club’s fans have responded to the rumours with their personal opinions. One suggested they would do it with additional money, whereas some others questioned the legitimacy of the story.
Here are some replies below…
