Former Manchester City forward Edin Dzeko has signalled his interest in returning to the Premier League, which triggered instant rumours that Crystal Palace would look to sign the striker - who are in need of an injection of goals in their forward line.
The Eagles are reportedly joined by the likes of Southampton and Cardiff City in contemplating a move for the 32-year-old to address their goal scoring woes, but the Eagles faithful are refusing to buy into the speculation.
Dzeko is currently featuring prominently for Serie A giants Roma, but earlier this week hinted at a potential return to the English top flight three years after departing the Etihad Stadium.
The Bosnian has been lethal in front of goal for the Italian giants, amassing 78 goals in 148 appearances, 39 of which came in his first full season with the club.
However, with the club having shown they are unprepared to splash significant amounts of cash in recent transfer windows, Palace fans on Twitter are not getting too excited about the prospect of Dzeko turning out at Selhurst Park any time soon...

He would be a great addition, but again scepticism prevails...
