Christian Benteke set to join Liverpool

The Belgian international has constantly been linked with a move to Anfield in the last few days and could be set to seal a move in the coming days

According to reports, Liverpool’s hunt for a proven goal scorer in the Premier League will finally be over after Christian Benteke agreed personal terms with the Reds over a lucrative move to Merseyside from Aston Villa.

The Belgian striker had crunch talks with Tim Sherwood where he informed the former Tottenham manager about his decision after Liverpool had activated his release clause set at 32.5 million pounds. Although manager Brendan Rodgers has been coy about the whole affair, it is becoming clear that the talented striker will sign for the club later today and could already be on his way to have a medical at the club’s training complex.

This also means the end of Mario Balotelli’s Liverpool career that never really took off despite all the hype.
