Galatasaray eye Christian Benteke swoop on a free transfer when his Crystal Palace deal expires in summer


TURKISH giants Galatasaray are reportedly lining up a transfer swoop for Christian Benteke this summer.

Fanatik claims the Crystal Palace striker is set to be offered a route abroad when his Selhurst Park deal expires at the end of the season.

Benteke, 30, has been at Palace since 2016 following a £32million move from Liverpool.

But despite scoring 17 goals in his first season, the following four have resulted in just 11 strikes.

That gives Benteke a total of 28 goals in 138 games for the Eagles.

And Roy Hodgson is not looking to renew the hitman’s deal when it trickles out at the end of June.

However, Benteke could be set to revive his career in Turkey with Galatasaray.

The Super Lig giants apparently tried to sign Benteke in January, only for the ace to rebuff their advances.

But with his future no longer looking like it will be with Palace, Gala could be at the front of the queue this summer.

Current president Mustafa Cengiz is up for re-election and believes signing Benteke would help solidify his position as the club’s top chief.

Meanwhile, SunSport can exclusively reveal Palace are eyeing Juventus’ teenage centre-back Radu Dragusin.

The Eagles are planning a swoop for the Romanian, who is out of contract at the end of the season.

The powerful defender, 19, has also attracted other clubs with his displays for junior sides at both club and international level.
