Crystal Palace want Yannic Bolasie sale to fund purchase of star Liverpool striker


  • Liverpool are one of the many clubs that are going through a transition this summer.

    Jurgen Klopp, who took over the Anfield outfit half-way through last season has started to have his say on the squad and has brought in a number of quality players from different clubs in Europe.

    Though he is still looking for a couple of other players to strengthen particular positions, he is now currently busy trying to get rid of all the deadwood in the squad going into the next season.

    One such player who is completely out of favor at the club is Belgian international Christian Benteke.

    The 24-year old was not able to impress the Liverpool manager in his outings in the previous season and was summoned away from the squad and was asked to look at potential clubs to move to by Jurgen Klopp.

    He revealed that Benteke will have no place in the team next season and that a move away from the club is the best possible option for the player.

    However, it is now understood that Liverpool are no ready to let go off their player if they are not able to recoup the £32.5m they paid for his services to Aston Villa just a year ago.

    Turkish giants Besiktas were ready to make a move for the Belgian at a price around the £25m mark but Liverpool are not ready to let him go at that price.

    Crystal Palace were also linked with a similar bid in the past but were not able to get their man but it is now understood that their sale of Yannick Bolasie to Everton will fund Benteke’s move to Palace in the coming days.

    It was revealed earlier that Everton have all but agreed on a deal for the winger having already signed Andros Townsend earlier in the summer but are not ready to let him go for the £20m that Everton were ready to pay for him.

    Everton will now be expected to increase their bid for Bolasie and Pardew is hoping that he can use those funds to get his hands on Benteke this summer.

    The Belgian will be a good fit at the Selhurst Park but is to be seen if Palace are ready to meet his asking price. Do you think Liverpool should sell Benteke at a smaller price that what they purchased him for?
