Reports this weekend broke claiming that Aston Villa striker Christian Benteke would be on his way to Liverpool for a medical on Monday morning, but the Reds boss has insisted that he doesn’t know a thing about it.

“I don’t know what you’re talking about,” he said.
When pushed further he reiterated again: “No really, I don’t know what you’re talking about.”
However, his deadpan delivery could suggest that he is just keeping his cards close to his chest on the deal for fear that some unforeseen misfortune prevents the move from going ahead.
But still, with a transfer committee now handling all comings and goings at Anfield, there is a chance that he might not know anything about the rumours back home in the UK.
