Benteke only moved to Anfield in a £32.5million switch from Aston Villa last summer but he struggled to make an impact last season, particularly following the arrival of Jurgen Klopp as manager.

The striker, who is currently competing at Euro 2016 with Belgium, has indicated he could be prepared to leave Liverpool this summer and now Palace have been tipped to launch a £19million bid.

Boss Alan Pardew is keen to add to his options up front having released Emmanuel Adebayor and Marouane Chamakh but they are likely to face a fight to snare Benteke, who has been linked with Chelsea and a number of clubs from across Europe in recent weeks.
