Chinese clubs move for Crystal Palace striker Christian Benteke

Crystal Palace striker Christian Benteke is back on the agenda of Chinese clubs.

The Sun says Palace have been approached by agents for two Chinese clubs with offers for £32million striker Benteke.

The Eagles would sell the Belgian, 28, but know they could only get around £15m for him.

And that would leave boss Roy Hodgson without any first-choice strikers with time running out in the window, so Palace may have to say 'no'.

Benteke scored in yesterday's 5-0 rout of friendly opponents Bristol City.
