Tottenham Hotspur: Christian Benteke ‘offered’ to Spurs as Daniel Levy eyes Harry Kane understudy

Tottenham Hotspur: Christian Benteke ‘offered’ to Spurs as Daniel Levy eyes Harry Kane understudy - Tottenham Hotspur Transfer Rumours

According to a report from the Guardian, Spurs have been offered a chance to sign Crystal Palace striker Christian Benteke this summer along with the likes of Troy Deeney and Carlos Vinicius – and Tottenham were offered the same opportunity back in 2017 while Mauricio Pochettino was manager. 

Benteke, who scored just two goals in 24 starts last season for Palace, is currently valued at around £9.45m by Transfermarkt and Spurs now have the option to swoop.

His best ever Premier League haul, scoring 19 for Aston Villa during the 2012/2013 campaign, was followed by a consistent run of goalscoring seasons in the Midlands before Liverpool snapped him up for an eye-watering £32.5 million. 

Should Spurs sign Benteke?

After an underwhelming first year, Benteke was immediately shipped out to Crystal Palace where he bagged 15 Premier League strikes in his debut campaign – with a report from the Mail back in 2017 claiming Liverpool offered him to Tottenham first.

Now, over three years later, Spurs have been offered that same opportunity according to the Guardian – with the striker hunt still firmly on despite seismic transfer activity concerning the likes of Sergio Reguilon and Gareth Bale. 

Benteke has emerged as a new name who could move to north London, if Levy were to take the offer, but it is arguable that a move for the ‘colossal‘ striker doesn’t exactly hold merit.

Who did Jol replace as Spurs manager in 2004?

His lacklustre form since the 17/18 season doesn’t exactly warrant the Belgian becoming a potential solution to Jose Mourinho’s lack of depth behind Harry Kane – and the £120,000-per-week ace is arguably overshadowed by superior options like Habib Diallo or Bas Dost. 

Spurs fans, would you take Benteke as a striking option behind Harry Kane? Have your say in the comments down below…
