Liverpool fans are literally praying that Metro’s rumour is fact today here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they seem to think that Christian Benteke is reiterating his agent’s comments that he wants to leave Aston Villa.
European football is one of the top priorities on Benteke’s wishlist and as one of our punters notes, he could get that and be playing week in week out at Anfield, whereas a move to a club like Chelsea could see him sat on the bench.
Ahead of the Euros in 2016, the forward wants to be playing for a better club but also feels the need to ensure he won’t spend the campaign on the bench watching the number one forward excel – and this could be the ideal solution for Benteke and Liverpool who we all know are desperate for a forward.
Liverpool fans. Is this the forward you need to bring in this summer or is someone like Gonzalo Higuain a better option? Let us know your thoughts below.
