Brendan Rodgers remained tight-lipped when quizzed on rumours linking Liverpool with a move for Aston Villa striker Christian Benteke.
Having received a reported £49million from Manchester City for Raheem Sterling earlier this week, rumours began to circulate that the Anfield club had tabled a bid for the Belgium international.
That fee was reported to be £32.5m – thought to be Benteke’s release clause – but, after Liverpool’s 2-1 friendly win over Brisbane Roar on Friday, boss Rodgers remained coy.
When asked if he could shed any light on the story, the Northern Irishman replied: “No!”
Benteke has netted 42 Premier League goals over the last three seasons.
