Liverpool receive boost as European giant line-up move for huge flop

Christian BentekeLiverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern saw their Sunday ruined as they bottled a two-goal lead to lose 3-2 to Southampton but there is some good news on the transfer front.

Remarkably, it seems somebody genuinely wants to sign their biggest flop as The Sun on Sunday state Juventus are eying a move for Liverpool’s Christian Benteke this summer.

Benteke has been a disaster since moving to Anfield for a massive £32.5m last summer, a figure which made him the second-most expensive signing in the club’s history, and Jurgen Klopp understandably wants to offload the Belgian this summer.

The 25-year-old was approached regarding a move to Italy in January, which he rejected as he thought it would effect his chances of making Belgium’s European Championship squad.

Liverpool have lost their patience on Benteke as the striker has started just one league game in 2016 and he’s unlikely to be trusted in the back-end of the campaign, with the Reds pushing for European football.

Liverpool fans, who’s the worse signing- Andy Carroll or Christian Benteke? Let us know in the comments below!
