According to Spor Haber, Turkish club Besiktas have agreed on personal terms with Liverpool striker Christian Benteke.

The Belgian international has failed to impress manager Jurgen Klopp and has fallen down in the pecking order at Anfield after moving to the Merseyside last summer for a whopping £32.5million.

Besiktas are looking for a new striker after German international Mario Gomez has terminated his contract with the club after the break-out that happened in Turkey. The 25-year old who is unsettled at Liverpool is tipped to move away from Anfield all summer.

Klopp is also keen to sell the Belgian but the Reds have rejected a bid of £25million from Crystal Palace as they want the exact price of £32.5million they paid for the striker last summer.

Jurgen Klopp has also confirmed that the Belgian is not in his plans for the new season.

“Everyone knows about it. Christian has already said maybe it makes sense to go to another club. Christian is still a really great striker,” Klopp told Sky Sports.

“We have a few more strikers and I think it makes more sense to give them match time. But if there are clubs that want a real striker than they have to make real offers otherwise we will find solutions. A few clubs try to gamble but we are not part of this, we are serious.”

Besiktas want to sign the forward on loan but Reds are willing to sell him only on a permanent move but the Turkish side are reportedly ready to offer only as much as £21.2million as they don’t have the finances to meet Reds quoted a price which remains a stumbling block in the negotiations.
