Liverpool to sanction transfer: £32.5m striker on his way

Liverpool FC could cash in on Christian Benteke, the Belgium international, especially following interest for the forward from the likes of Premier League clubs West Brom and West Ham.

Christian Benteke, who joined Liverpool FC from Premier League side Aston Villa in the summer of the 2014/2015 season for a transfer deal worth 32.5 million pounds, became Liverpool FC’s second most expensive signing.

The former Aston Villa attacker has found it difficult to secure first team selection under new Liverpool manager, Jurgen klopp, who has preferred to either have Daniel Sturridge or Divock Origi start upfront. Benteke, who had such a thrilling time at Aston Villa, has found it difficult to replicate the fine form at Liverpool FC where he has managed to net only eight goals thus fur.

Christian Benteke has particularly found it hard to adapt to new Liverpool manager’s Jurgen Klopp style of football. Klopp who favours a fast attacking form of play has therefore been forced to drop Benteke to the bench preferring instead Divock Origi or Daniel Sturridge.

Christian Benteke’s move from Anfield could further be hastened by the fact that new manager Jurgen Klopp is still bent on restructuring the clubs squad and is rumoured to be interested in signing Marseilles 30 million pounds rated striker Michy Batshuayi.
While both Premier League clubs West Brom and West Ham are interested in Christian Benteke’s signature, the two may find it difficult to meet both Liverpool FC’s asking price and the players wage demands. West Brom however, could fund Christian Benteke’s move by cashing in on want-away player Sadio Berahino.
