Liverpool boss urged to seal summer deal for £30 million man

Robbie Fowler believes Christian Benteke would be the perfect signing for Liverpool.

Fowler is a big admirer of the Belgium international, who is Reds boss Brendan Rodgers’ No 1 striking target,

“The striker issue is a big thing,” Fowler told the Liverpool Echo.

“We didn’t have anyone who scored 10 Premier League goals last year and I can’t remember the last time that happened at Liverpool.

“It’s important we get a proven goalscorer and of the names being bandied about I’d go for Benteke. I think he’s excellent.

“I know there are other top strikers out there and probably more prolific scorers. But in terms of all-round play – strength, speed, physicality, finishing – I think Benteke could be the main man for Liverpool.” © 2017 Frontier Theme
