According to the Mirror, Christian Benteke is open to a move to Crystal Palace this summer.

The striker is expected to leave Liverpool after a hugely disappointing first year at Anfield last season.

The Reds are keen to offload him too; with it widely accepted he is not a part of Jurgen Klopp’s plans moving forward. There has been interest in his services and Crystal Palace are among those that are considering a move.

According to the Mirror, manager Alan Pardew believes that the Belgian could be the answer to their goalscoring problems next season.

And as far as the report is concerned, the striker is equally interested in the move and would consider it should they negotiate a deal with Liverpool.

Benteke is keen to be a first team regular after spending most of last season on the bench and Palace would be able to offer that given the lack of strikers in their squad.

It now remains to be seen if the Eagles can work out a deal with Liverpool though with them wanting as much as £30 million for him according to the Telegraph.
