Juventus to offer Liverpool flop £20m summer escape route

Juventus could offer Liverpool flop Christian Benteke the chance to end his Anfield nightmare, report The Sun.

The towering 25-year old striker has struggled to adapt to life on Merseyside since his £32.5m move from Aston Villa in the summer, starting just one league game in 2016.

With teammate Daniel Sturridge having returned from injury, the Belgian now finds himself behind both the England international and countryman Divock Origi.

Having notched just eight goals so far, he has struggled to truly convince under both Brendan Rodgers and Jurgen Klopp.

Juve are understood to be eyeing him as they line up potential long-term replacements for Mario Mandzukic, who has been linked with a move to Tottenham Hotspur.

The Reds are believed to be willing to take a rather large hit on their hefty investment, reportedly willing to strike a £20m deal with the Old Lady.

Previously, he has been linked with a potential summer move to West Ham United.
