Crystal Palace inviting offers for Christian Benteke

Crystal Palace are inviting offers for Christian Benteke.

The Daily Mail says Palace will consider offers for striker Christian Benteke after signing Jean-Philippe Mateta.

Benteke, 30, who has still to agree new terms, is among the forwards being considered by West Brom but could opt to see out his contract.

The striker has had a torrid time during his almost five years at Palace, scoring just 24 goals in 120 Premier League appearances and failing to live up to the £32million price tag he came with from Liverpool in 2016.

Mateta arrives on an 18-month loan from Mainz for £2.7million, with an obligation to buy for £13.4m when the 23-year-old has started 15 Premier League games.
