So Bentekes agent has just said his player is not close to the Anfield exit and wants to fight for his
Liverpool futre! Surely he is clutching at straws and its only a matter of time.

Or his comments could be fishing for last minute interest. I still expect benteke to be gone by the seasons start.

What do you think ed001?

{Ed001's Note - he has not had an offer he likes yet.}

Simple negotiating tactic. My guess is there's a stalemate over something. Agents releasing this kind of thing to the media is just them trying to tell the buying club that they aren't the only option for the player.

As stated above, I'm also sure he will be going.

I would imagine he's hoping other clubs might yet come in for him. Trouble is palace are the only club in for him and I'm not convinced West Ham have ever been interested at the price we have slapped on him.

Thats the worry, only Palace have offered near to the figure we are looking for. I take it the package/ waged is not what he wants. Would he of been told to find another club ed?

{Ed001's Note - he knows he is surplus, yes.}

Talking to a Palace supporter last night, not a great source but generally knows early when things are done and Benteke deal still doesn't sound like anything near guaranteed to go through. Not from their side but his/ ours. (Personally think he'd be perfect for their game plan and they might actually score some goals) .
