Liverpool fans here inside the Football Transfer Tavern are feeling optimistic after seeing the news in the Metro – with the publication claiming that Aston Villa striker Christian Benteke is attempting to force though a move to Anfield in the summer transfer window.
The 24-year-old striker is one of the Premier League’s deadliest strikers, and it is no surprise to see a number of top four clubs eye a move for the Belgian frontman.
The publication suggests that Liverpool are eager to offer £30 million for the striker, in a bid to help solve their problems up-front next season.
As our landlord here in the Tavern quips, Benteke has been in sensational form for Tim Sherwood’s side of late, and a move to Anfield could be the perfect move for him for next season.
