Christian Benteke reportedly wants to stay at Crystal Palace, despite interest from the Chinese Super League, according to Goal.

Shandong Luneng Taishan want to bring the Belgian forward to China, but Benteke wants to stay at Selhurst Park.

The 28-year-old wants to prove himself at Palace after a mixed start to his career in South London.

Benteke has spent a long time injured whilst at the Eagles, including missing the majority of last season.

With only a year left on the Belgian’s contract at Selhurst, Palace may be keen to sell the attacker.

The striker only netted once last season, coming in the win over Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium.

Benteke could be handed a boost next season with Michy Batshuayi returning to Chelsea after the expiration of his loan deal.

Chelsea’s transfer ban could come into effect this Summer, meaning that the Blues would be reluctant to sell him.

Roy Hodgson has admitted he has an interest in signing the Belgian on a permanent deal, but the transfer ban could hinder any potential deal.
