Crystal Palace fans react after twist in Timothy Castagne pursuit

According to Italian media outlet Gazzetta dello Sport, Crystal Palace are refusing to give up on their pursuit of Atalanta right-back Timothy Castagne, and Eagles fans have been quick to have their say on the latest twist on Twitter.

The south London outfit have been linked with a move for the Belgium international – even before Aaron Wan-Bissaka left for Manchester United – although a separate report from Gazzetta dello Sport earlier in July suggested that the 23-year-old wanted to sign a deal to stay with the Champions League qualifiers rather than moving on.

However, Gazzetta dello Sport report that Palace haven’t taken no for an answer, and have even offered €21m (£18.8m) and want to get a deal done.

The Belgian scored five goals and provided a further five assists in 37 appearances in all competitions for the Bergamo-based outfit in 2018/19, and has five caps and one goal for his country, too.

Eagles supporters have taken to social media to give their thoughts on the rumour, and produced a pretty mixed reaction.

While one believes that it is a “negotiation ploy to get Atalanta to up his wages”, another refuses to believe they have offered £18m for him – no surprise given their only summer addition so far is goalkeeper Stephen Henderson on a free.
