In today’s rumour, Crystal Palace have submitted a bid of £30m for Liverpool’s out of favour striker Christan Benteke which was rejected.
The bid made by Palace of £23m up front and a further £7m in add-ons was rejected by Liverpool who are holding firm for £32.5m for the big Belgian striker.
Crystal Palace have just sold Yannick Bolasie to Everton for a fee of £25m and could rise to £30m with add-ons. With the sale of Bolasie, Palace have the funds to complete the Benteke deal.
It is obvious that Crystal Palace are crying out for a striker like Benteke but the Reds have refused to budge from their valuation as they look to recoup all or most of the money they paid Aston Villa for the Belgian Striker.
