CB1It is now official Liverpool football club have completed the signing of Belgium Striker Christian Benteke from Aston Villa Football club for a reported fee of £32.5 million. Benteke, 24 had been linked with Liverpool throughout the whole summer break and had been reported to be Brandon Rodgers numbers one target.

Liverpool and Brandon Rodgers will know first hand what the hit man is capable of, it remains to be seen however whether Benteke will be the first choice front man at Liverpool with Daniel Sturridges eminent return from injury.

His injury record will also be of concern to the backroom team who will do their utmost to keep him more on the field of play than in the operating room, having suffered a major injury that kept him out of the team for a long spell last season.
