Liverpool have reportedly rejected a £25 million bid from Crystal Palace for striker Christian Benteke. 

This has been reported by the Liverpool Echo, who claim that the Reds instantly turned down the bid from the Eagles. 

Benteke, 25, only moved to Merseyside one year ago but failed to prove his credentials at the club during his debut campaign.

It appears, then, that Liverpool are ready to offload the former Aston Villa man but are holding out for as much as £30 million. 

It remains to be seen, however, as to whether Palace will pay the mega fee for the Belgium international.

And it's fair to say that the majority of them are fairly surprised by the rejection. Ultimately, £25m for a player struggling for confidence doesn't seem to be a bad deal.

Of course, you can't exactly blame the Liverpool hierarchy for holding out for as much possible for Benteke - after all, they paid £32.5m to bring him to the club - but they certainly appear to be taking a risk. 

Here's how Liverpool fans have reacted:
