Making the £32.5 million move from Aston Villa to Liverpool, Christian Benteke becomes the seventh signing of the Reds’ summer transfer window, and a big statement of intent from manager Brendan Rodgers.

Joining on a long-term contract after Liverpool triggered his Villa Park release clause, Benteke will assume the role of Rodgers’ first-choice striker.

Happy with his move to Merseyside, the 24-year-old said: “I want to be the best and I want to reach the best of myself.”

“I came here to win trophies. I came here to reach some great goals with the team.

“It’s about winning trophies. It’s about doing something in [my] career I can maybe explain to my son or my kids what I did.”

Keen to make a big impression at Anfield, a lot will be expected of Benteke during the 2015/16 campaign.

The Belgian brings with him considerable Premier League experience, having scored 42 goals in 89 games over the past three season with Villa.

A strong target man capable of excelling both in the air and on the ground, Rodgers will be hoping Benteke brings a cutting edge to the Reds’ attack.
