Liverpool are believed to be close to agreeing a move for powerful Aston Villa striker Christian Benteke, according to the TalkSport website.
The powerhouse striker is tipped to leave Villa this summer, with a whole host of top clubs linked.
However, speaking on talkSPORT’s Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, Reds insider Graham Beecroft suggested that the Belgium international could soon be on his way to Anfield.
“My understanding is Christian Benteke, who has been on their radar for some time, is very close indeed to signing for Liverpool,” said Beecroft.
“I expect him to sign if not today then certainly in the not too distant future. Liverpool have done their work and have sealed a deal [with Aston Villa].”
