Premier League side Crystal Palace are reportedly one of a number of clubs keen on Leeds United's hitman Kemar Roofe.

Crystal Palace fans on Twitter have provided mixed reactions to reports linking them with Leeds United forward Kemar Roofe this summer.

Sky Sports previously reported that Premier League duo Palace and their rivals Brighton are interested in Roofe's signature.

 

London club Palace are currently managed by former England boss Roy Hodgson and some added attacking threat would be useful to their squad ahead of the new campaign.

The Selhurst Park faithful have offered differing views on links with the former West Bromwich Albion, who produced his best season in a Whites shirt last time out.

Some Palace fans think he'd be a good forward-thinking purchase for the club, whilst others believe a lack of ambition is being shown.

During the previous campaign, Leeds finished third in the Championship table, with Roofe playing a staring role upfront by netting 14 goals during the season – he did miss 16 games through injury, so he, more than likely, would have hit 20+ had he played more games [transfermarkt]

Nonetheless, with the surprise departure of Pontus Jansson to Brentford earlier on this month, Leeds fans will be keen to keep hold of their top talents as they aim to make another promotion push ahead of the new campaign.
