Crystal Palace fans have taken to Twitter to react after it was reported that Celtic forward Odsonne Edouard is on the Eagles’ radar as they hunt for a striker in January, while Roy Hodgson is also interested in Rangers star Alfredo Morelos.
The south Londoners have previously been linked with Colombia international Morelos – Sporting Director Dougie Freedman was believed to have scouted the 22-goal forward in Rangers’ 1-1 draw with Hearts.
Edouard, however, is a new link and serves to suggest that Palace are keeping a close eye on Scottish football as they attempt to ease their goalscoring woes.
Edouard has enjoyed an impressive campaign both in terms of scoring and creating goals – the 21-year-old Frenchman has netted 12 times and has also registered 12 assists.
Hodgson’s side have scored the second-least amount of goals in the Premier League this season with just ten goals in 12 games – only Watford have scored fewer with eight.
Let’s take a look at how the Palace fan on Twitter reacted to the report…
Get them both and we win the league

Need to do something…completely lacking up front. If we lost zaha and had these two we would still push on.without no chance.

I’ll be amazed if any of them turn up at Selhurst

Not sure if we’d be given the money to get both since Morelos will be around £20m. I do believe that we should sign 2 strikers and sell Benteke.

Buy one swap Benteke for the other!
