After weeks of building speculation, Liverpool have officially worked out a deal with Aston Villa that sees prized striker Christian Benteke heading for Anfield.
Details of the transfer are still pending but the Reds official website have called the signing a "long-term deal" and part of the agreement was for Liverpool to compensate the release clause in the Belgian's Villa contract. Make no mistake, the addition of Benteke and Ings does not signal a return to the kind of goal rate the club enjoyed when Luis Suarez was around, but it is all but guaranteed to be an improvement on last season's acquisitions of Mario Balotelli and Ricky Lambert. Benteke has hit a rut with Villa until Tim Sherwood shows up. If he can continue the form he displayed in the second half last season, he projects to be one of the top goal scorers in 2015/2016. The thought of Ings being a shoe-in as a Week 1 starter is now under major threat. Jul 22 - 4:13 PM
