Chelsea target Palace striker!

Chelsea targeting Benteke move now!?

Christian Benteke


Chelsea are said to be considering a move for Christian Benteke according to the Telegraph, after seeing their plans for number one transfer target, Romelu Lukaku, fall through.

These reports about Chelsea Chasing Benteke aren’t anything new, the striker has been linked with the Blues before.

Chelsea are reported to be looking for a forward this summer, and are apparently growing increasingly desperate given Diego Costa is sure to be leaving, and they only have the option of Michy Batshuayi, who Antonio Conte has made it clear is second string at best for the time being.

The media believes Benteke is a player who Conte feels would fit his style of play, and is physical enough, yet going from a marquee signing to a Liverpool reject may not sit well with the fans.

Benteke, 26, only joined Palace last summer, arriving in a £27M deal after an underwhelming spell with Liverpool.

He played a key role in helping the Eagles maintain their Premier League status for another season.
The Belgium international made 36 top flight appearances, bagging 15 goals along the way.

Do you think he would be a good match for Chelsea's squad?
