Palace have offered Benteke, 31, a new deal and he is a regular starter but he could be available for around £10m.

He also took less money to stay with the Eagles and stay within range of what Burnley pay – but there will be a difficulty if he is asked for a relegation cut.

Benteke was left out of the starting XI against Brighton on Friday and Palace will spend money to either buy Arsenal’s Eddie Nketiah or keep Mainz loanee Jean-Philippe Mateta permanently.

Liverpool striker Origi are also in their sights but there will be some persuasion to swap Anfield for Turf Moor at this stage of his career – and in the middle of the season.

The 26-year-old striker is out of contract in the summer and is looking to make big moves in Europe or join a top Premier League side.

Liverpool also want to keep him for the rest of this campaign.

Burnley are also considering a loan deal for Rennes striker Serhou Guirassy, ​​who costs around £13m but is currently unpopular.

Dyche and his team were looking for a No 10 and a striker before Wood’s departure and now want one more striker.

Clarets also plans loan-to-buy deals for targets to protect them if they fail.

That is not possible with Benteke or Origi.
