Perhaps unsurprisingly, the reports have divided some of the Eagles fans on social media.

Nketiah has previously shown a lot of promise. However, he has struggled to really kick on since becoming a more important member of Mikel Arteta’s first-team at the Emirates.

Others however, seem much more optimistic. Few appear to be in favour of paying £20 million. But they do think that he has a lot of potential.

With that in mind, here is what some of the Palace fans make of the reports…
