Report: Benteke set for Reds exit?

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has reportedly insisted that Belgium international Christian Benteke does not have a long-term future at Anfield, according to The Sun.

The 25-year-old forward joined the Reds from Aston Villa last summer in a deal worth £32.5 million, scoring six times in 22 premier league appearances.

He was a regular before the departure of club’s previous manager Brendan Rodgers in October, but has struggled for opportunity since the German manager was appointed.

The report claims, Klopp has already decided that the Belgian striker’s playing style does not meet up with his tactics at the Merseyside.

The report also suggested that goalkeepers Simon Mignolet and Adam Bogdan could leave the club, while fullback Jon Flanagan has been rewarded with a new contract.

Benteke has started just five outings this year and has been an unused substitute in the last three games.
