Chelsea have launch​​ed​ ​a surprise move for Crystal Palace star,​ ​Christian Bentek​e.

​The Premier League champions set their eyes on Benteke after their top target Romelu Lukaku was sold to Manchester United on Thursday in a £75 million deal​.​

Benteke​ ​joined Palace last summer, arriving​ ​from Liverpool for £27m​.​

The Belgium international made 36 top flight appearances, bagging 15 goals along the way.

Benteke​ ​is admired by Blues boss Antonio Conte​, who is keen in reinforcing his​ ​forward options​ ​as Diego Costa seems certain to leave Stamford Bridge.

The Telegraph​ ​reports that he ​has expressed interest in signing Benteke, who still has three years left to run on his Palace ​contract.
