Antonio Conte weighs up Chelsea transfer bid for Liverpool star – report
Chelsea are pondering a bid to sign Christian Benteke from Liverpool this summer, say reports
Chelsea are pondering a bid to bring Christian Benteke to Stamford Bridge from Liverpool this summer, according to reports.
The Blues are believed to be on the lookout for a number of new signings as Antonio Conte prepares for his first season in charge in the Premier League.
Conte is thought to be keen to bolster his attacking options at Stamford Bridge amid uncertainty over Diego Costa’s future and after the club opted not to extend Radamel Falcao and Alexandre Pato’s deals.
Now, the Daily Mirror is reporting that Chelsea are considering a bid to bring Liverpool striker Benteke to the club this summer.
The Belgium international striker failed to produce consistent form for Liverpool last season and has been linked with a move away from Merseyside in recent weeks.
The same report says that Conte believes that Benteke would be more suited to his style of play than Liverpool’s.
