Crystal Palace are interested in signing Oliver Burke in the summer, according to reports.

Burke, who is currently on loan at Celtic from West Brom, has scored five goals in 14 games for the Hoops and has earned a recall to the Scottish national side.

Burke has hinted that he’d be happy to make a permanent move to the Scottish champions but as West Brom paid £14m to sign him from RB Leipzig, they’ll be looking for a fee close to that amount and it remains to be seen if Celtic will be willing to spend so much on him,

Palace have a recent history of making expensive purchases and their Director of Football, Dougie Fredman, is said to be a big admirer of the 21-year-old.

Burke is currently in Kazakhstan with the Scottish national team but will return to Celtic with his eye on helping the Hoops win a historic Treble Treble.
