Liverpool have reportedly joined the race to sign Crystal Palace striker Alexander Sorloth this summer as he continues to thrive on loan at Turkish side Trabzonspor – and Palace supporters have reacted on Twitter.
Turkish website Fanatik have claimed that Liverpool are just one of a number of sides interested in signing 24-year-old striker Sortloth. Other Premier League clubs have been linked, as have European giants Bayern Munich and Real Madrid.
Sortloth joined Palace in January 2018 from FC Midtjylland for a fee of £9million (Sky Sports), after he had netted 15 goals in 26 games for Midtjylland – and laid on nine assists. For Palace, though, he was a lot less prolific.
Indeed, the 22-time Norway international has netted just one goal in 20 Palace appearances – and that saw the London club offload him to Trabzonspor on a two-year loan deal. In his first season, Sorloth has absolutely starred.
Sorloth has sprung onto the radar of numerous top-flight clubs after netting 25 goals in 39 league and cup appearances – as well as creating seven assists. Trabzonspor have a permanent clause in his contract, and they may activate such a deal.
But with Liverpool now said to be linked with a move for Sorloth, many Palace supporters have reacted on Twitter to the news that the Selhurst Park flop could be on his way to Anfield – and many are astounded.
This is hilarious ??

He’s up there with some palace greats like Frazier Campbell, Tom ince and Yaya Sanogo. The only player that could ever live up to being the Norwegian Calvin Andrew??
