Liverpool fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern are keen to hear what the Daily Star have to say about their latest attacking transfer target.
The Reds could well be set to land Christian Benteke who would be available for around £15 million this January should Brendan Rodgers decide to pursue the Aston Villa striker.
That said, we think that given how badly Villa are doing right now and how desperate they are for goals, letting their only source of them leave could well be a huge mistake.
Liverpool meanwhile are also struggling for goals and with Fabio Borini and Mario Balotelli failing to find the back of the net and a place in the top four of the Premier League looking more and more unlikely, something simply has to be done.
Rodgers has also been considering West Bromwich Albion’s Saido Berahino but we think that Benteke is a sound alternative for a cheaper price and an option that could soon disappear altogether if they dither too long over making a bid.
Liverpool fans. Would you endorse a switch for Benteke or has he lost the spark that he enjoyed in his debut season in England? Let us know your thoughts below.
