Benteke has scored seven league goals this season, which is more than his last three league seasons combined, and he has hinted that he could be open to leaving and while Wright was praising him, he revealed that the former Liverpool man could leave Selhurst Park.
He said: (1:01:42) “When you’ve got people like Eze, Wilfried Zaha, and Benteke in this kind of form, they’re going to cause teams problems.
“I’m hearing that he might be going for free; there’s interest from Turkey, but if he could put a run together like this, you would probably try and keep him, but you don’t know if you’re going to get that performance out of him on a weekly basis.”
Do you think Benteke will leave in the summer?
Yes, his time has come
No, hopefully he stays
TIF Thoughts on Benteke…
However, at Palace, he has somewhat stagnated, and it has been good to see him back in form again this season.
Given that his contract with the Eagles expires at the end of the season, we wouldn’t be surprised to see Benteke leave the club this summer, but it would be interesting to see him stay and try and get back to the goalscoring form he had while he was with Aston Villa.
