Liverpool agree to sell striker

Liverpool have reportedly agreed to sell Belgian striker Christian Benteke this summer, as Besiktas have joined the race to sign the striker.

Crystal Palace have been strongly linked with making a move for the striker, who moved to Anfield from Aston Villa last summer, in a deal worth £32.5million.

His poor form last season has seen his value drop, with Crystal Palace offering £25million, an offer that was rejected by the Reds, who are looking to recoup £30million.

It is claimed that Liverpool have agreed to sell the striker to anyone who meet their valuation, whilst they are also open to the idea of a loan deal.

However reports in Turkey claim that Besiktas have made a £21.1million, almost £9million short of Liverpools asking price.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp claimed recently that perhaps it is best for the 25-year old to move on

Everyone knows about it. Christian has already said maybe it makes sense to go to another club. Christian is still a really great striker.

Klopp would prefer to sell the striker in order to generate funds, but accept that a loan deal could be a more beneficial move in the long run if the striker rediscovers his form at a new club.
