Christian Benteke’s arrival at Liverpool will send a strong message to the Reds’ rivals, insists Adam Lallana.
Kop star Lallana reckons the signing of the Belgian striker would be a further boost to a new-look squad.
The Reds have already enhanced by the summer arrivals of Roberto Firmino, Nathaniel Clyne, Danny Ings and James Milner.
And Lallana would welcome the signing of Benteke.
“That would be a big statement,” said Lallana on the Sky Sports website.
“He is a big presence. He has always scored goals. He would be a very strong component for us if he was to arrive.”
