It would be a huge gamble and very risky to sell Benteke in this window unless you have a quality replacement lined up for sure, which i very much doubt we are able to arrange due to being a club fighting for its premiership future currently.
The other issue is CB has been so badly out of form and has also lost his scoring touch that his value would have plummeted since we signed him, so does it make sense to sell at a giveaway price?
But i have this feeling that Big Sam is going to come calling in January, and if a bid of around 25m may well tempt Roy to sell, and if he can then bring in say Slimani and Vydra for around 30m for Both would make it an acceptable alternative deal.

He is not entitled to an endless stream of perfect crosses, its unrealistic. We get the ball into the box constantly but his movement has been poor. Last night there were a couple of examples of not getting to getting to the front post or having some anticipation. He has also missed loads of really good chances with his feet. The likes of Defoe would have 4 or 5 goals atleast with the chances he has had this season.

An endless stream? More than one decent ball might be nice. It is up to the manager to get the team playing to their strengths. We don't cross the ball enough in the air and the stats back this up. Even when we do it is invariably a slice into touch to touch.

I wonder if Chelsea would still be interested? Benteke + Money for Michy Batshuayi would go down well

The real question is do we persist, or cash in if the right offer comes along. Some players lose it, Others regain it

Not this season, but we have to persevere with him. He will regain his form at some point.

Wonder if the current injury crisis might force some new thinking on Benteke's future.

With 140k a week saved on wages, you could bring in 3 new players (say 2 forwards and a centre back).

Just a thought.

I think most average premier league players probably earn 60-70k a week now don't they?

You need a buyer and three sellers before the end of the month. Don't see people lining up. Not going to happen.

That's what we should be aiming for. I do like Benteke and I'm sure he will come good again at some point, but all of our eggs are currently in one basket and we're not a club that can afford to have a striker of his value and on his wages that's not scoring goals.
