Should, as expected, a deal for Benteke go through then he will become Palace’s fourth signing of the summer and will be expected to link up with new winger Andros Townsend.

Despite being written off as a flop in many quarters, Benteke scored nine Premier League goals in 14 starts for Liverpool, having netted 42 times in 82 starts for Villa in three seasons in the top division.

Benteke’s arrival could impact on the future of Yannick Bolasie, who Palace turned down an £18m bid from Everton for.
