Crystal Palace FC to make £19 million bid for Liverpool FC striker Christian Benteke

Crystal Palace are ready to splash the cash to secure the services of Liverpool flop Christian Benteke, according to reports emerging out of England

Crystal Palace endured a terrible second half to the season last term and one of the main reasons behind the Eagles’ struggles was an inability to find the back of the net on a consistent basis.

As a result, manager Alan Pardew has made it a priority to sign a top class striker this summer and names such as Saido Berahino, Simone Zaza and Fernando Llorente among others, have all been linked with a move to Selhurst Park.

Now in fresh rumors emerging out of England, it has been claimed that Palace are now considering a move for Liverpool striker Christian Benteke.

Benteke wanted by Crystal Palace

Benteke joined Liverpool from Aston Villa on a whopping £32.5 million deal last season but the striker failed to prove his worth at Anfield and increasingly found himself reduced to a fringe player under Jurgen Klopp.

It is clear to see that Klopp does not rate Benteke too highly and the striker could be sold if a good offer comes along.

Given Benteke’s quality, a host of clubs are understandably keen on signing the striker and claims from England state that Palace are ready to splash as much as £19 million in order to secure the services of the Belgian international this summer.
