Liverpool fans cannot wait to hear the news from Metro here in the Football Transfer Tavern as the club seem to have agreed a fee to land Aston Villa forward Christian Benteke.
According to reports the Reds will pay the money for the forward and providing he can pass a medical, Benteke will join up with the club on their pre season tour.
Now as one of our punters notes, Manchester United were keen on the player, so it is a huge coup fort Rodgers should a deal come off for the player, who may have been off the boil through injury at times last term, but is still someone we think of as a top player.
Liverpool fans. Do you think that you will manage to push a deal for Benteke through? Let us know your thoughts below.
