Christian Benteke is reportedly eyeing up an end-of-season move to the Far East, with Crystal Palace happy to sell if they receive a £20m payment.

Crystal Palace are reportedly prepared to offload Christian Benteke to a Chinese Super League club at the end of the season, regardless of whether they stay in the top flight.

The 27-year-old has scored 17 Premier League goals since arriving at Selhurst Park from Liverpool in a £27m deal two years ago, just two of which have arrived this season.

Benteke is said to be keen to move on to revive his career elsewhere and, according to The Sun, the striker's representatives are in the process of seeking viable options in the Far East.

Palace will be happy to recoup £20m for the Belgium international, who has a chance to impress any potential suitors at this summer's World Cup finals in Russia.

The report suggests that Benteke currently earns £90,000 a week at Selhurst Park, but those wages will be reduced to £50,000 if Palace drop down.
