Palace reopen Benteke talks

Keen to complete deal before season opener

Crystal Palace are rumoured to be in talks with Liverpool to sign striker Christian Benteke.

The Belgian international has struggled for both form and game time since completing a £32.5m move from Aston Villa a year ago and could be surplus to requirements at Anfield this season.

Palace manager Alan Pardew is a keen admirer of the 25-year-old’s and could be set to make an offer that Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp will find hard to reject.

Palace, hoping to complete a deal before their opening game against West Brom on Saturday, have reopened negotiations after having an initial bid of £25m turned down last month.

The Anfield outfit value Benteke at £32m and insist that they will not sell below their valuation.

Manager Jurgen Klopp revealed at the weekend selling Benteke "makes sense" but warned interested clubs against trying to get the 25-year-old on the cheap.

Benteke was signed by former Reds boss Brendan Rodgers last summer but has started just eight Premier League games since Klopp arrived at the club.
