'Fuming', 'Way too much': Some fans of PL rival react to hearing their boss wants £20m Arsenal player
A number of Crystal Palace fans have taken to Twitter to comment on reports from The Sun over the weekend claiming that the Eagles want Arsenal striker Eddie Nketiah.
Nketiah could well be on the move this summer. He is now into the final year of his contract at the Emirates. And previous reports claimed that he has not accepted fresh terms.
That appears to have caught the attention of Patrick Vieira. According to The Sun, the new Palace boss would love to sign Nketiah.
It is claimed that he is available for £20 million. Meanwhile, Palace are also tracking Denmark hero Kasper Dolberg.
And it seems probably fair to say that more Eagles fans would prefer to see the club look elsewhere rather than pursue a move for Nketiah.
The 22-year-old looks to be an extremely talented goalscorer. However, he has arguably not kicked on as many would have hoped. He only scored twice in the Premier League last season.
Admittedly, he only enjoyed a peripheral role. However, it is probably fair to say that he did not always make Mikel Arteta’s job a lot tougher.
‘Please no’: Crystal Palace fans react to links with Arsenal striker Nketiah
And it would appear that some of the Palace fans are not particularly excited about the idea of Vieira landing Nketiah.
He is largely unproven at the highest level, has one year left on his contract, and would cost £20 million. So you can understand why supporters may have their concerns.
With that in mind, here is how some of the fans have reacted to the reports…
Shouldn’t even be considering Nketiah!! Arsenal fans say he’s average and he would offer nothing we don’t already have.

20 mil is way too much for someone with 8 PL goals since 2017.

Nketiah is so pointless https://t.co/tSQlzsVSAC

If Palace give Arsenal anything more than a bag of Quavers for Nketiah, I’ll be fuming.

We deffo have been given big money no way we’re in for this many attacking players even if they’re just options, without being interested in a good amount of defenders https://t.co/XNAwaeKgHG
