Club Brugge will look to sign Crystal Palace striker Christian Benteke

Club Brugge are planning a move for Christian Benteke.

The latest reports in England suggest that Club Brugge will look to sign Crystal Palace striker Christian Benteke.

The 29-year-old has been subject to interest from various European clubs.

The Belgium international was signed by Crystal Palace in August 2016 from Liverpool for a fee of 31.2 million euros. The 29-year-old has a contract until 2021 with the club.

Benteke has played 104 times for Crystal Palace since signing from Liverpool, scoring 21 goals and creating 9 assists.

His record for Belgium is also impressive. Benteke has scored 15 goals in 37 matches for Belgium at senior level.

Christian Benteke is currently out of favor at Crystal Palace and could leave the club this winter.

Philippe Clement is looking to shore up his attacking options and Crystal Palace’s Christian Benteke happens to be a target. He is a long term admirer of Benteke and believes he can get the most out of the Belgium international.

The Belgium international provides a unique blend between a classic center-forward and the modern striker.

According to the report, “Club Brugge want to bring Crystal Palace striker Christian Benteke back to Belgium. The ambitious Belgians, which have just completed their Champions League group campaign, are planning a January move for Benteke, says Fussball Transfers. Brugge are counting on the striker’s Euros ambitions to tempt him back home. Benteke needs regular first team football to be sure of his place in Belgium’s Euros squad – something he isn’t getting at Palace. Brugge have €10m slate as a winter transfer budget.”


The 29-year-old would be a very good addition for Club Brugge and they can afford him as well.

Stylistically, he would be a great fit in Club Brugge.

Club Brugge fans would certainly love to see him arrive at the club.

It will be interesting to see whether Club Brugge will make their move during the winter transfer window.
