Crystal Palace facing colossal £30m battle to land Premier League forward

The Crystal Palace fans who are gathered at the bar in The Transfer Tavern this evening are discussing reports concerning a transfer target for the club.

According to reports in The Telegraph the Premier League side have been told by Liverpool that they will have to pay £30m to secure the services of Christian Benteke this summer.

Alan Pardew is on the lookout for a new striker and the towering Belgian is reportedly one he could be looking to sign this summer.

Considering the imminent departure of Dwight Gayle to Newcastle, the Eagles could well be forced to look for a new forward.

The former Aston Villa man will be available this summer after failing to impress Reds boss Jurgen Klopp that he has what it takes to do  on a regular basis.

The South London outfit recently failed in a big money attempt to land Marseille forward Michy Batshuayi, with the 22-year old nearing a move to capital rivals Chelsea.

Could Benteke lead the line for Palace? The man to take them to the next level?
