Liverpool to Sign £32.5m Striker next week


Liverpool is prepared to meet Aston Villa’s £32.5million buy-out clause for star striker Christian Benteke and that the Reds will sign the big Belgium this week to get him on board for their pre-season tour that kicks off in Bangkok on July 14th.

Tottenham and Arsenal were also believed to be in the hunt for Benteke, but it appears as if Liverpool has won the race according to the Daily Express who says Rodgers considers the 24-year-old to be a replacement for Luis Suarez, and that not only will he score goals as his Premiership pedigree shows, but will also create space for other players, a situation that was missing last season following the departure of the Uruguayan.
