Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has decided that there isn’t a long-term future for striker Christian Benteke at Anfield, according to recent reports.

The Belgian first appeared in a Liverpool shirt under Brendan Rodgers during the summer months in a £32.5million deal from West Midlands side Aston Villa.

Prior to the departure of Brendan Rodgers earlier this season he was a regular in the side, however recently he has been struggling to get game-time under Jurgen Klopp, starting just five games since the turn of the year and being an unused substitute in the previous three Liverpool outings.

Reports from The Sun newspaper suggest that Klopp has concluded that Benteke’s style of play doesn’t suit the tactics which the manager is employing and it is also reported that Adam Bogdan and Simon Mignolet may also be departing, although a new contract has been promised to defender Jon Flanagan.
