Striker Christian Benteke has reportedly agreed personal terms with Crystal Palace as Liverpool look to recoup as much of the £32.5 million they spent on him a year ago.
Benteke has been linked with a move to Palace this week and the Eagles have today signed Newcastle United winger Andros Townsend and Marseille goalkeeper Steve Mandanda.
Alan Pardew’s side desperately need a new forward, with the Eagles that desperate they signed Emanuel Adebayor in January.
A report in the Mail on Friday evening claims Benteke has agreed to the personal terms on offer from the Selhurst Park club, but Liverpool are holding out for close to £30 million for the Belgium international.
Liverpool are hoping to recoup most of the £30 million spent on Sadio Mane when they offload Benteke – the club’s most expensive ever signing.
Paul Joyce of the Express reports that Palace have made a £25 million bid for Benteke, and are now “waiting for a response.”
A move to Palace would seemingly suit all parties.
