Agent reveals Liverpool ace is set for huge transfer u-turn

According to reports from Sport Witness, Christian Benteke’s agent has insisted he expects the Liverpool striker to stay at Anfield beyond the summer transfer window.

The Reds shelled out a whopping £32.5million to sign the Belgium international last summer, after bagging 49 goals across three seasons at former club Aston Villa.

But the 25-year-old has struggled to transition that potency to Merseyside and found himself out in the cold after Jurgen Klopp took the managerial reigns from Brendan Rodgers in October.

Indeed, Benteke made just 14 Premier League starts this season and has accordingly been linked with a move away from Anfield in the build-up to the summer transfer window.

A number of Premier League clubs have been tipped to swoop for the Belgian battering ram, including Antonio Conte’s Chelsea and their London rivals West Ham.

But when asked on a potential departure, agent Kismet Eris told Sport Witness that he’s currently discussing “nothing at all with any team”.

Furthermore, when asked whether he expected Benteke to stay on Merseyside this summer, Eris simply replied “yes.”
