The Express have managed to get Liverpool fans looking up with shock here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they report that a deal for Christian Benteke has finally been agreed.
The Aston Villa forward will leave the club and join Liverpool for £32 million subject to a medical being passed by the player and as one of our punters notes, the fact that Liverpool have managed to beat Manchester United to a player both clubs were keen on speaks volumes.
We think this is huge for the Reds and Benteke is a player who would really be able to make a difference for them on the goal front next season – something they are in desperate need of.
Liverpool fans. Do you think this is something that will see you break back into the top four next season or do you need far more that one player? Let us know your thoughts below.
