The Guardian have Liverpool fans looking up with interest here in the Football Transfer Tavern as it seems that Christian Benteke will do all he can to leave Aston Villa and join the Reds this summer.
Benteke has been heavily linked with a summer switch and now it seems that the forward will ask manager Tim Sherwood to allow him to leave and link up with Brendan Rodgers as soon as possible.
As one of our punters notes over a beer and burger by the bar, Benteke is the ideal forward for Liverpool, who let’s face it, are desperate to have someone who can score goals, so paying a £32 million release clause is the least of their worries!
Liverpool fans. Is this something you would like to see happen? Could Benteke be the forward to finally make it your year? Is Benteke the best forward out there you could realistically sign? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments section below!
