Breaking: Liverpool Agree £32m Fee With Crystal Palace For Christian Benteke

Liverpool striker, Christian Benteke, is set to join Crystal Palace after the two clubs agreed a deal worth £32m.

It is believed that Palace will pay an initial fee of £27m for Benteke’s services, with a further £5m included in add-ons.

Liverpool, who were keen to recoup their outlay on the Belgium international, rejected a £30m offer from the south London club earlier this week.

Benteke will become Palace’s all-time record signing, surpassing the £13m acquisition of Andros Townsend from Newcastle United in July.

The striker scored 10 goals in 42 appearances in his debut season at Anfield but failed establish a regular starting place under Jürgen Klopp.

Klopp, who replaced Brendan Rodgers as Liverpool’s manager last October, started Benteke just three times following New Year’s Day.
