The arrival of Benteke further bolsters Liverpool's attack following the signings of Danny Ings and Roberto Firmino earlier this summer.
The news of the 24-year-old's move to Liverpool may come as somewhat of a surprise to Brendan Rodgers.
When asked about the striker on Australian TV this week, Rodgers told the reporter that he had no idea what she was talking about.
