Everton are considering a move for Crystal Palace's former Liverpool striker Christian Benteke after losing Romelu Lukaku, sources close to the Goodison Park club have told ESPN FC.

Following Lukaku's £75 million move to Manchester United, Everton are drawing up a list of potential replacements, with Arsenal's Olivier Giroud remaining their No. 1 target.

But former Liverpool forward Benteke is also on Everton's wanted list, as initially reported by Sky Sports, and sources said manager Ronald Koeman is an admirer of a player who has a wealth of Premier League experience from his time at Aston Villa, Liverpool and Palace.

The Belgium international scored 17 goals for Palace last season after arriving from Liverpool in a £27m deal, playing a key role as they fought off the threat of relegation.
