Crystal Palace fans have taken to Twitter to react after Polish outlet Przeglad Sportowy reported that Krzysztof Piątek is well placed to join the Eagles in a £30m+ move.
The report reveals that West Ham and Tottenham are also interested in the 10-cap Poland international, although the south Londoners are best placed to land the AC Milan forward as they are prepared to stump up the cash for a permanent move, which would suit the Italian giants who are ‘desperate’ for money.
With 15 goals in 39 appearances for Milan in total, only a few of those have come this season as Piatek has found the back of the net just four times in 18 outings this term, which isn’t all that impressive.
However, he is a striker of some pedigree given his previous antics for Genoa and also his record of five goals in ten appearances for his country.
Roy Hodgson’s side are in need of goals having scored just 20 times in 22 Premier League games this season – the second-fewest amount in England’s top-flight ahead of Watford, who have 17 goals to their name.
Let’s see how the Palace fans on Twitter reacted to the Piątek news…
The scenes if this happens

If this happens, I don’t know what I’ll do https://t.co/SLbRYEGyNN

Firstly, these two supporters both attempted to express how big a moment it would be if Palace signed Piątek.
One said “the scenes if this happens” while another fan said “if this happens, I don’t know what I’ll do” – it seems that this pair are particularly excited about the rumours.
If we get him then we are winning the Champions League. It won’t happen though. Does anyone know if Przeglad Sportowy are reliable?

Elsewhere, this fan named Callum said that the Eagles are “winning the Champions League” if this deal goes through – we can only admire the optimism on show from this particular supporter.
Utter rubbish. No chance he would choose us and no chance our club will part with that much money. Silly season in full flow.

Furthermore, Jonny said that this news was “utter rubbish” before saying that “silly season” was in full flow.
I’m on my knees https://t.co/i3aLNXmq1C

Don’t do this to me https://t.co/pN66y5fPDx
— Mark (@Mark_CPFC) January 11, 2020
Lastly, Ollie and Mark both had their say on the Piątek rumours.
The former said that they were on their knees as if to say that they were begging for the deal to be completed, while Mark simply said “don’t do this to me” – it would certainly be a big transfer given the finances involved.
