Representatives for Benteke are well aware of the attention the former Aston Villa star is receiving, and it’s believed this week talks are planned with West Ham.

Hammers source states,“It’s hard to do business with Liverpool because they always want big numbers and the player’s personal terms are high. He isn’t at the top of our list but we are monitoring the situation. It’s all a bit of a game really.

Hammer goes on to say that everybody is aware of the interest including the player and the agents. While they are certainly interested Hammer says there are several other irons in the fire.
