Crystal Palace approached by two Chinese clubs with offers for £15m Christian Benteke – The Sun

CRYSTAL PALACE have been approached by agents for two Chinese clubs with offers for £32million striker Christian Benteke.

The Eagles would sell the Belgian, 28, but know they could only get around £15m for him.

And that would leave boss Roy Hodgson without any first-choice strikers with time running out in the window, so Palace may have to say ‘no’.

Meanwhile, Eagles transfer supremo Dougie Freedman has inquired about Rennes winger Ismaila Sarr.

Freedman first spotted 21-year-old Sarr playing for Senegal in the World Cup and has tracked him since.

The forward, who is also a target for Watford, is available for around £30m.

He also contacted Nottingham Forest’s former Rennes coach Sabri Lamouchi for a personal check.

Palace have received a massive transfer boost as Arsenal seems to have ended their pursuit of Wilfried Zaha, 26.

The Gunners have agreed a deal with Lille over a £72m move for highly-rated winger Nicolas Pepe.

Everton, however, remain interested in the Eagles star and might still launch a cheeky bid before the transfer window shuts.
