Crystal Palace will consider offers for striker Christian Benteke after signing Jean-Philippe Mateta.

Benteke, 30, who has still to agree new terms, is among the forwards being considered by West Brom but could opt to see out his contract.

The striker has had a torrid time during his almost five years at Palace, scoring just 24 goals in 120 Premier League appearances and failing to live up to the £32million price tag he came with from Liverpool in 2016.

As a club harboring ambitions of a top-half league finish this season, Benteke's paltry return of just three goals in 13 games so far this season, the last one over a month ago, is clearly insufficient.

The Belgian looked to have rediscovered his confidence when he netted his three goals in as many games last month, but it appears to have been a false dawn with no goals since.

Mateta arrives on an 18-month loan from Mainz for £2.7million, with an obligation to buy for £13.4m when the 23-year-old has started 15 Premier League games.

The Frenchman has shown significant promise in the Bundesliga, having scored seven goals in the league for his parent club and 10 in all competitions.

Eagles boss Roy Hodgson will be keen for Mateta to start quickly to make up the huge shortfall in goals from Benteke and others, with fellow striker Michy Batshuayi still not having found the back of the net since re-signing on loan from Chelsea.
