Liverpool signs Benteke £32.5m away. Another move by Liverpool and this time it is the Belgian power-pack Christian Benteke which drag them into a race with their arch rival Manchester United. Liverpool is after the striker to enrich their attacking power as it lacks goal scoring ability of their strikers. Manchester also wants to make a bid on Benteke as their strikers are going out of the club.
Liverpool signs Benteke
Aston Vila chief Tim Sherwood said they wanted to retain Benteke but if a bid of £32.5m would made then they would have no choice but to let Benteke sign for Liverpool. Now Liverpool can go after Benteke with the whooping £49 m which they get selling Raheem Sterling and Liverpool has just offered what they were asked for.
Benteke contract length
Liverpool signs Benteke with the contract length ibeing yet to get disclosed. But it is believed that Ian Ayre has finally convinced Brandon to go after the Belgian young striker and get him out of Aston Villa. The team was in real need for a poacher and now it is assumed that the sterling money has been used in proper way.
Benteke playing position
Benteke is a prominent player for the position of the striker with a great goal scoring ability. He has a great physique with a good height. So he is as good at the aerial balls as on the field using his physique to take the ball under his control. The striker played a big role on Aston Villa’s last year’s performance.
Liverpool needed Benteke
Last season Liverpool scores only 52 goals. So there is no doubt that they are in a serious need to sign a firepower and Benteke seems to fulfil their criteria as the Belgian netted 42 goals in 88 apps. The injury of Sturidge and the depart of Sterling can be matched up with a real poacher like Benteke joining Liverpool upfront.
Benteke carrier history
Before Liverpool signs Benteke the Belgian striker has already earned himself a good C.V. Benteke moved to Aston Vila after his impressive season of 2011-12 with Genk where he scored 19 goals in 37 apps. After joining Aston Vila his scoring ability is not gone. For EPL club he continuing his performance scored 42 goals in 88 matches.
Liverpool signs Benteke after already have signed players like Firmino and Milner. Now if Benteke deal is made then they will have a good attacking side. Benteke’s joining to Liverpool seems like to end their goal drought but Benteke is an uncertain player as he plays like a world class player in one day and in other one he seems like just a normal player who messed his game. So time will tell what has been reserved for both the club and the striker.
