Antoine Semenyo in action for Bristol City

According to TEAMtalk, West Ham, Newcastle and Crystal Palace are all interested in signing Bristol City forward Antoine Semenyo.

The report also goes on to add that clubs like, Norwich City, Southampton, Sheffield United, Brighton and Watford also hold an established interest in the 21-year-old.

Manchester United and Chelsea have previously been linked with young attacker, but that interest seems to have died down.

West Ham and Newcastle have been known to scout Semenyo, but it seems fellow Premier League side Crystal Palace are the ones leading the race and seem to be the one that Semenyo is most keen on.

Palace see Semenyo as their next Yannick Bolasie and they believe he would fit perfectly into their squad.

Crystal Palace signing a young attacker from Bristol City is not unheard of, they acquired a young Yannick Bolasie from there in 2012 for £350,000, before selling him to Everton in 2016 for £25 million.

You can see why Palace like the look of Semenyo and why many believe he would fit in at Selhurst Park.

The youngster would bring plenty of pace and directness – which is something that Palace have been associated with in recent years. He would also bring creativity and goal threat, both things they have been lacking this campaign.

In 43 appearances this season, the Robins’ number 18 has scored five goals whilst collecting seven assists along the way.

It may only take one bid to ignite a bidding war this summer with so many clubs interested, which is ideal for Bristol City.

It was reported that the Robins were looking for £2 million in 2019, so with two more years under his belt and the improvement in his goals and assists return, you can only think Bristol City will be looking for a lot more now.

There seems to be very high interest in Semenyo from the Premier League, and it may come as a disappointment to many Robins fans, but it looks highly unlikely that Semenyo will be at Ashton Gate come the beginning of next season.
