Report: Tottenham offered the services of 29-year-old Belgian international



Tottenham offered Crystal Palace striker Christian Benteke

According to a report from The Guardian, Tottenham Hotspur have been offered the services of Crystal Palace and Belgium striker Christian Benteke.

Tottenham’s search for a new striker is well-documented. Jose Mourinho does not have any other natural centre-forward at his disposal apart from star man Harry Kane. Going into the season with just the England captain as the only option would be fraught with risk.

However, there have been no signings made as of yet, but a number of strikers continue to be linked. And the latest name to be offered to Spurs is Crystal Palace’s Benteke. (h/t The Guardian)

The 29-year-old came through the ranks at Belgian outfit Standard Liege, before joining the KRC Genk youth setup, only to return to the former outfit a few years later. He then had loan stints away at KV Kortrijk and KV Mechelen before returning to Genk for a second permanent spell.

After a year, Benteke moved to England, joining Aston Villa in 2012. The Belgian international was a hit at the Villa Park, scoring 49 goals in 101 appearances, before earning himself a big money move to Liverpool in 2015. After one difficult year at Anfield, Crystal Palace snapped him up in 2016, but he has struggled at the Selhurst Park as well.

In 115 appearances till date, Benteke has scored just 23 goals. Over the past three seasons combined, the 29-year-old has scored just six times in the Premier League, which indicate his endless struggles in front of goal.

Given his decline, signing Benteke, in spite of his Premier league experience, would be the wrong move. Hopefully, the club is able to bring in someone before the window closes next month.
