Liverpool poised to make £32.5m Benteke bid

Liverpool are set to meet Christian Benteke’s £32.5 million
release clause in the coming days, Goal understands.

The Reds have embarked on a major recruitment drive this
summer but are seeking further reinforcements to their
forward line, despite already signing Danny Ings from
Burnley and welcoming Divock Origi into the fold following
his loan spell at Lille.

Benteke has subsequently emerged as the Reds’ key target
and, fresh from selling Raheem Sterling to Manchester City
for £49m, Liverpool are set to table an offer that will trigger
his buy-out clause.

Benteke will then be permitted to hold talks with the Reds
ahead of a move, and securing the Belgian’s signature
would represent something of a coup given rival interest in
the 24-year-old.
