Crystal Palace are reportedly interested in signing Kemar Roofe from Leeds United. 

According to claims from Sky Sports, the Eagles have set their sights on a deal for the forward, who caught the eye in the Championship under Marcelo Bielsa last season. 

Roofe was a key part of the Leeds side that came close to securing promotion, finishing third and proceeding to bow out of the play-offs in the semi-finals against Derby County.

The 26-year-old’s future at Elland Road is currently uncertain. Although contract talks have taken place, no agreement has yet been reached, with the ex-Oxford United man’s current deal expiring next year.

Roofe led the line well for Leeds, notching up 14 goals in the league for his side last term, and has evidently attracted interest from clubs in the Premier League. 

Sky Sports reports that both Crystal Palace and Brighton and Hove Albion are interested in recruiting the dynamic front-man, with other Championship clubs also keen to bring him in this summer.
