Tottenham have been linked with Christian Benteke as they scour the transfer market for an affordable target man to play second fiddle to Harry Kane, but it remains to be seen if we’ll end up landing his signature.

Palace paid £28m to sign Benteke four years ago, but Transfermarkt say his market value has fallen to £9.45m while CIES Football Observatory believe he’s only worth €2m-€4m.

Benteke has made 115 appearances in all competitions for Crystal Palace since joining from Liverpool in 2016, but he’s only scored 23 goals with 10 assists.

He really isn’t worth it.

The Belgian international had a prolific debut season at Palace (15 goals in 36 PL appearances), but he’s only managed six goals in his last 72 games.

Benteke is a good target man who’s dominant in the air (145/258 aerial duels won) and has quick feet to beat defenders (19/23 successful dribbles), but he’s not good enough to replace Kane.

Benteke earns £120k-per-week/£6.24m-a-year at Selhurst Park too, so we could end up spending more than £26m to sign him for a standard three years.
