brendan-rodgers-liverpoolBrendan Rodgers insists he doesn’t know anything about Liverpool’s interest in Christian Benteke.

Benteke is expected to have the first part of a medical in London today ahead of a move to Anfield.

Liverpool have agreed to meet the player’s £32.5million release clause and the completion of the move is thought to be a formality.

But speaking after the Reds 2-0 victory over Adelaide FC, Rodgers insisted he was in the dark over the Belgian striker’s future.

“I don’t know what you’re talking about,” he said at a press conference.

When pushed further, he added: “No really, I don’t know what you’re talking about.”

Rodgers earlier made no secret of his need to bring in another striker however, saying: “It was just clear we needed to score more goals.

“A few years ago we needed to improve our goal tally and we did that and it gave the team a little bit of profit. I feel it was the same this summer.

“We were down on our goals. Overall it is the balance we need to improve offensively and defensively and the players that will contribute to both.”
