Linked with us today. Seems that he is unhappy with Klopp.

He didn't suit Rodgers and he doesn't suit Klopp. It's amazing how often technical directors are allowed to fail with all these transfers. £32.5 mil... Or maybe Rodgers demanded him, which would be even worse.

His limitations have always been obvious. He makes a good back-up but not good enough as #1 for a top side/aspriring top side.

Think Chelsea should refrain from Liverpool purchases (Meireles, Benayoun, Torres). Expensive as well.

What was wrong with Meireles? Signed for 12 million, played the squad role fairly well, contributed to the UCL title with that goal against Benfica and then left for Fenerbache for 8 million.

agree. perfect squad player.

Benteke however is only a poor man's Lukaku and I said that when we still had Lukaku^^.Would be a decent squad player, too but for 30m+ we can do better

Meireles was extremely frustrating. And he was one of the favourite scapegoats back then. He would produce such awful plays on the ball. Some moments of quality and he worked hard. All in all he was okay at best imo. But it was signings like that that made Chelsea slip from the top.

I liked him though. Just look at him, such an odd ball. That goal and celebration vs Benfica was great, yeah.

At least we can hoof the ball to him, perfect for a midtable side, how the mighty have fallen...
If we have to take him, make it a loan, but don't forget to add the option to buy him after the loan. Just to be safe. :)

Brilliant, another washed up striker.

I officially have no hopes for the coming season if this actually happens. Not that I have any right now lol.. Seems like we're in for another summer of mediocrity. How I wish Conte could be at Cobham right now planning.. Fucking Euros.

The source is unreliable.

Would be a beast again in a specific system which uses traditional wingers who smack in loads of crosses.

Like Liverpool, we don't play that way so he'd struggle just as much here as he did there. He'd be good for a side like West Ham or Southampton. Even United.

What a year does is crazy. This time last year, so many fans would probably have wanted him when he was at Villa. I recall a few people on here wanting him and majority of people stated he was better than Lukaku etc but one bad season changes everything. I mean look at the quote from a member here. Several people liked this post. Nothing wrong with it, because Benteke was top class at Villa however now everyone's perception is that he is not good enough. Yes, he has been poor at Liverpool but let's face facts, he does not suit Klopp's style of play and generally Liverpool did not get the best out of him. He still scored a respectable amount of goals for a player who regularly was benched.

That being said, I don't think we should go for him. Just amazes me how people's perception change of a player so drastically.

I know I know as Belgian this will come off as being a homer, but I think people are severely under rating Benteke. We don't know his ceiling because the best service he has had has been at Villa (excepting of course the Belgian NT) As a main striker at Chelsea I think he'd score between 20-25 goals. One of his great properties is that he has carried Villa for many game which would relieve pressure from Eden from carrying the burden. Plus he has excellent chemistry with Eden..

Who else is a realistic target to come in to either be 1 or 2 striker? There's not much out there that isn't vastly overpriced or unproven.
