He’s up there with some palace greats like Frazier Campbell, Tom ince and Yaya Sanogo. The only player that could ever live up to being the Norwegian Calvin Andrew??

Sorloth is currently on loan at Turkish side Trabzonspor, joining the club in the summer of 2019. The campaign has been an impressive one for the Norwegian, as he has grabbed 19 league goals in 26 games. He also has six league assists to his name. In the Turkish Cup, the striker has found the back of the net four times in five appearances.
What do we think?
As per WhoScored, the 24-year-old has earned an impressive rating of 7.61 for Trabzonspor in the Turkish top-flight. This shows what a campaign he has had to this point and it also shows that he arguably deserves another chance at Palace. Considering Palace have scored the second-lowest number of goals in the Premier League this year (via WhoScored), Sorloth’s goals may have made a huge difference to the Eagles’ season.
