Plenty of Crystal Palace fans have been reacting to an update regarding striker Christian Benteke on social media.
Benteke is just one of a number of Palace players who are out of contract in a matter of weeks, however, it seems as if the Eagles are making a late attempt to keep hold of the forward.
Do you think Benteke will accept Palace's offer?
The report claims that the ball is now in the Belgian’s court over whether he will stay at Selhurst Park.
Benteke, who Roy Hodgson described as ‘fantastic’ during his tenure as manager, ended the season in fine form. He scored seven times in his final 13 Premier League games of the 2020/21 season, and those displays seem to have done enough to persuade Palace to offer him a new deal.
Palace fans react
@CPFCtransfersHQ shared the news regarding Benteke on Twitter on Wednesday afternoon.
This is what these supporters had to say in reply, with many excited at the news of a new deal being tabled.
“Tears in my eyes”
“Never heard of Het Laatste Nieuws but I beg”
“Please, PLEASE let this be true!!”
“Het laatste nieuws have my children”
