Arsenal Banter brings you latest update on Arsenal news from top media sites like Daily Mail, Metro, The Express, The Independent, The Telegraph, SkySports and so on.
Liverpool have reportedly finally reached an agreement with Crystal Palace regarding the sale Belgium international, Christian Benteke who was previously linked with a move to Arsenal this summer.
Report from BBC claims the two clubs have reached an agreed on an initial fee of £27m with that figure potentially rising above the £30m mark based on performance related add-ons.
The news emerged earlier yesterday after it was reported that the Reds rejected an earlier bid of 23m plus £7m in add-ons.
However, the latest report went on claiming that the Belgian will now be set to travel to London to complete his medical and finalise the deal. In fact, should the transfer gets completed in time, the 25-year-old could even feature for the Eagles in their clash with Tottenham Hotspurs this weekend.
Although Benteke scored just ten goals in 42 appearances with Liverpool, most still view him as a top striker and feel that he was simply a poor fit for both Brendan Rodgers, and Jurgen Klopp’s philosophies of football.
