It’s really buzzing at the moment at Anfield, Cheznews has been told that big Belgian striker Christian Benteke is undergoing a medical at Liverpool.
Brendan Rodger has been edgy and in a haste to sign the Aston Villa striker ever since Manchester United declared interest in the powerful forward.
Reports have been gathering pace over the past 24 hours that the deal would be done after the Anfield giants agreed to trigger the Belgian’s £32.5million release clause.
And the deal could even be concluded tonight after an Anfield insider made it known that the Aston Villa striker arrived on Merseyside for his medical earlier on Friday.
It will be a boost to Brendan Rodgers as he rebuilds his attack following Raheem Sterling’s move to Manchester City, but a further blow to Villa, who are also facing up to losing Fabian Delph, with the England midfield man poised to join Sterling at the Etihad Stadium.
