Ex-Liverpool Star Facing Fight To Save Career
Crystal Palace striker Christian Benteke is facing a fight to save his career at Selhurst Park according to the London Evening Standard.
The ex-Liverpool striker has endured an injury-hit career at Crystal Palace since his transfer in 2016.
Crystal Palace paid around £30m to sign Benteke from newly crowned European champions Liverpool.
The Belgian international was heavily linked with a move to the Chinese Super League during the winter transfer window and those transfer links have resurfaced this summer.
Christian Benteke signed a four-year deal when he joined the Eagles from Liverpool.

The 28-year-old had a superb season in his first campaign as a Crystal Palace player.
Benteke scored 17 goals in all competitions for the South London outfit before his career at Selhurst Park went downhill.
The former Liverpool hitman scored just three goals in his second season as he battled with form and fitness.
Christian Benteke found the back of the net once in his third season (last campaign) as he was ruled out for over four months with a serious knee injury.
