Crystal Palace has reached a deal with Liverpool striker Christian Benteke

London, United Kingdom – BBC Sport’s David Ornstein reports on Thursday evening that the clubs have “agreed a fee of 31.2 million euros plus add-ons that could see the deal rise to above 34.7 million euros”.

Ornstein adds that Benteke is on his way to south London to undergo a medical and agree personal terms on the move.

Benteke, who joined the Reds for 37.6 million euros in July 2015, would be Palace’s record signing.

Winger Andros Townsend was the Eagles’ previous record signing, having joined from Tottenham for 15 million euros in July.

The London-based club had offered 26.6 million euros up front, plus 8.11 million euros in add-ons, for Benteke but was rejected by the Reds on Tuesday.
