Benteke on Juventus radar

Juve consider Benteke move

Italian giants Juventus are reportedly mulling over a bid for Liverpool striker Christian Benteke. The Belgian international joined the Reds last summer following a successful spell with Aston Villa.

Benteke found himself as a regular under former boss Brendan Rodgers with the Reds trying to find their feet at the start of the season.

However, since the dismissal of Rodgers, he has struggled to cement a regular role in the first-team with Jurgen Klopp preferring the likes of Roberto Firmino, and Divock Origi ahead of him in the pecking order.

According to the People, the Old Lady are keeping a close eye on the player's proceedings following claims that he could part ways with Liverpool at the end of the season.

The Turin giants are said to be on the search for a long-term replacement for Croatian striker Mario Mandzukic.

Benteke has netted just seven goals in the Premier League this season.
