Hebei China Fortune have reportedly identified Crystal Palace forward Christian Benteke as a possible transfer target.
Former Wales and Sunderland boss Chris Coleman has just been named as the new manager of the Chinese Super League side but it appears that the 48-year-old could look to sign a familiar face this summer.
According to The Mirror, Benteke could be offered the chance to make the lucrative switch to Asia after only scoring three times in the Premier League last season.
Palace paid £27m to sign Benteke from Liverpool in 2016 and the report has suggested that selling to a Chinese club may be the Eagles’ best chance to recoup most of their outlay.
Coleman is no stranger to Benteke with the 27-year-old having represented Belgium against Wales during qualifying for Euro 2016.
