Crystal Palace to target West Ham striker if Benteke bid fails

Crystal Palace are will turn their attentions to sign West Ham striker Andy Carroll this summer in the event that a move for Christian Benteke fails.

The Eagles have had Benteke on their radar for some time and are reported to be willing to meet Liverpools asking price of £30million although an offer is yet to be made.

However, manager Alan Pardew is already drawing up contingency plans in case a move for the Belgian fails to materialise.

The Sunday Express claim that former Newcastle and Liverpool striker Andy Carroll is on Pardew’s radar as the 27-year seems to have finally gotten over a series of severe injuries that have blighted his career.

Carrolls chances could become even more limited after West Ham splashed £20.5million on Andre Ayew.
