Here is Wednesday’s news and gossip concerning Liverpool:
Liverpool have reportedly agreed a deal to sign Aston Villa forward Christian Benteke, according to the Daily Star.
The Villains have previously wanted at least £30m for the Belgian.
He could be joined at Anfield next season by Nathaniel Clyne, who former Premier League boss Harry Redknapp believes will be a great signing for the Reds, the Daily Star report.
The full-back has completed the first part of his medical on Merseyside.
Despite the incomings, it is player already at Anfield that is dominating the transfer news this summer, with Raheem Sterling’s future continuing to plague the club.
The Daily Express reveal that former Red John Aldridge has suggested that the saga is making a ‘mockery’ of the club, and needs to be resolved quickly.
Another player possibly following the winger out of the door is striker Rickie Lambert, with the Daily Star reporting that West Brom are keen on the veteran.
The forward has reportedly accepted that his Liverpool career is over.
Finally, Sebastian Coates should complete his £4m move to Sunderland later today, according to The Guardian.
The defender spent last season on loan at the Stadium of Light.
