According to the Daily Mail, Crystal Palace are expected to return with another bid for Liverpool flop Christian Benteke.

The striker is expected to leave Anfield this summer after a poor first year at the club following his move from Aston Villa.

Crystal Palace are thought to be the most keen on his signature, but so far have failed to agree a move for him.

A major sticking point has been the Reds asking price, with them keen to recoup the £30 million they paid for him last summer should he leave.

The Belgian has indicated that he is wiling to stay despite being down the pecking order but, according to the Daily Mail, Crystal Palace are now willing to pay the high asking price for him.

They are now expected to return with another bid as Alan Pardew looks to build his squad ahead of next season.

It now remains to be seen if he agrees a move and joins the growing list of players to leave Anfield this summer as Jurgen Klopp continues to chop and change the squad he inherited from Brendan Rodgers.
