​Tottenham eye shock swoop for Crystal Palace forward Benteke

Tottenham are searching far and wide in their pursuit of a striker before the transfer window slams shut.

The London club are determined to sign a backup for Harry Kane for this season.

And Football Insider reports Spurs are now considering Christian Benteke from Crystal Palace.

The Belgian has been out of favour at Palace, and could be the type of backup target man Jose Mourinho wants at Spurs.

The 29-year-old has a poor scoring return in recent seasons, but Mourinho will back himself to get the best out of Benteke.

He would offer Spurs a different option to the other players in their squad.
