Alexander Sørloth left Danish club Midtjylland and made a switch to Crystal Palace in January 2018.

Since then, the forward has made only four starts in the league and all of them came during his first six months with the Eagles.

Roy Hodgson has handed him only three EFL Cup starts this season, where he managed to score once… and that’s been the only goal he’s managed.

Saturday’s edition of Belgian newspaper Het Laatste Nieuws has a report about the 22-year-old and it’s claimed Jupiler Pro League side Gent are ‘thinking’ about the attacker.

In 2017, the Norway international scored 10 goals and registered eight assists for Midtjylland when Jess Thorup was the manager. 

Thorup joined the Belgian outfit and could team up with Sørloth again, potentially on loan from Crystal Palace in January.

The Premier League side are presented as open to such an idea, and it looks a good way forward for both club and the player.

There was astonishment in Denmark at the amount Palace were prepared to pay for Sørloth, and he’s not really made any impact.
