Many Ipswich Town fans have taken to Twitter to react to the news that the club are in advanced talks to sign Barnsley striker Conor Chaplin.
The 24-year-old was a regular for the Tykes last season as their shock Sky Bet Championship promotion bid eventually ended at the play-off stage and now looks set to depart Oakwell for Portman Road.
Chaplin is a versatile forward player who is capable of playing as an out and out striker, as a number ten and as a wide forward on the left where required.
He scored four goals and provided a further three assists last term and started 31 league games under Valerien Ismael.
Naturally the news of this potential signing didn’t take long to reach the Ipswich faithful, with many taking to social media to air their views on the matter.

Top signing imo. Any news your end on Edmunson? Other outlets are reporting that as close but I’m waiting for something from you boys before I get excited. Could be a busy day for signings

Think this could end the Celina deal tbh, don’t see him being brought in as another striker so would be a lw I imagine

This would be a very very good signing, Downes going the other way perhaps. Get it done ITFC. #itfc

This one came out of nowhere, previously played with Cook at #Pompey which makes some sense.

Would be another decent aquisition if this goes through. Would surely mean the end of Jackson's Town career though perhaps……. https://t.co/JiF1FBUDFe
