Liverpool have accepted a bid from Crystal Palace for unwanted Belgian striker, Christian Benteke.
According to the Echo, the fee will be £27 million up front, with the potential for a further £5 million in add-ons – taking the final total to £32 million.
The striker will now travel to London to discuss personal terms and undergo a medical.
Palace’s bid comes less than 48 hours after their offer of £23 million up front was rejected by the club.
The add-ons in that initial offer were widely ridiculed, but the Echo reports that the add-ons in this new offer are both “realistic and achievable”.
The club are confident that at least £30 million will be recouped, meaning we’ll only make a loss of around £2 million on a player who signed for mega-money last summer. He could only manage 10 goals across 42 appearances in all competitions last summer and had fallen behind Origi, Sturridge, Ings, and Firmino in the pecking order.
Benteke will be Palace’s record transfer.
