Crystal Palace consider offloading Benteke

Crystal Palace are believed to be pondering the possible departure of Christian Benteke this month.

The Daily Mirror reports that Sam Allardyce is considering a sacrificial sale of the Belgian striker in a bid to raise cash for other transfers.

Benteke only joined Palace from Liverpool for a club-record £30million in the summer and has scored eight goals in 18 Premier League outings for the South Londoners, but his name has been bandied around for a potential winter sale.

Allardyce is hoping to raise funds to strengthen other parts of his squad and may be prepared to part with Benteke.

Chinese Super League club Beijing Guoan are believed to be interested in the 26-year-old former Aston Villa star but are yet to make contact with Palace.
