Christian Benteke, the Liverpool striker, is set to join Crystal Palace after the two clubs agreed a deal worth £32m.
The 25-year-old, who joined the Merseyside club for £32.5m from Aston Villa last summer, has been granted permission to undergo a medical and finalise personal terms.
It is believed that Palace will pay an initial fee of £27m for Benteke’s services, with a further £5m included in add-ons.
Liverpool, who were keen to recoup their outlay on the Belgium international, rejected a £30m offer from the south London club earlier this week.
Benteke will become Palace’s all-time record signing, surpassing the £13m acquisition of Andros Townsend from Newcastle United in July.
