Crystal Palace put Benteke up for sale to fund attacking signing plans

Crystal Palace have put Christian Benteke up for sale.

The Daily Mail says Palace are asking for £8million to sign Benteke as they look to revamp attack.

The former Liverpool striker is on around £120,000 a week but has seen his form skydive having scored six league goals in his last three seasons.

Watford have put star forward Ismaila Sarr up for sale at £40million as they look to come to terms with Premier League relegation and Palace are hoping to raise funds to sign him.

The Eagles are also interested in signing Brentford star attacking duo Said Benrahma and Ollie Watkins.

Meanwhile, Palace are also reportedly in talks with Ireland midfielder James McCarthy about a new contract.
