Chelsea set sights on Liverpool star Benteke

Chelsea are keeping tabs on Liverpool striker Christian Benteke, according to the Times.

The Belgium international, who is currently playing the Euros, was paid £32.5m last summer but is expected to be eager to leave after failing to impress at Anfield alongside Divock Origi, former Chelsea forward Daniel Sturridge and Roberto Firmino.

New Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has reportedly put Benteke on top of his summer list and would be eager to sign the 25-year-old in order to line up him in a 3-5-2 with Diego Costa.
