Liverpool fans at the moment have not much to cheer about following the exit of Steven Gerrard and a humiliating 6-1 defeat against Stoke on the final day of season. However, Liverpool fans can be assured over a summer move for their key target Christian Benteke.
Liverpool have decided to press ahead for the striker’s transfer by including Rickie Lambert in their offer. Aston Villa have accepted that fat that Benteke will leave Villa Park next season to pursue bigger and better things in his career.
The Belgian has proven to be a consistent goal-scorer since his move in the Premier League and Liverpool do need a goal-scoring striker after a dismal season by Daniel Sturridge, Mario Balotelli, Fabio Borrini and Rickie Lambert.
Liverpool have identified Benteke as the ideal man to rain goals at Anfield and they will put an offer in the region of 25million and Rickie Lambert.
Aston Villa are looking to re-build their squad for next season to yet again establish themselves as a top-flight club in England. Given their financial situation, Benteke’s sale and Lambert joining the Villains will be the ideal deal for manager Tim Sherwood.
Liverpool are expected to press ahead for Benteke, as soon as their situation with Raheem Sterling is sorted.
