Liverpool’s pre-season ended yesterday with a win over Swindon where marquee signing Christian Benteke scored his first goal for the club on debut.
The supporters will be hoping that the Belgian international can also score his first competitive goal when Reds face Stoke on Sunday. Not to forget Stoke City humiliated Liverpool 6-1 at the Brittania Stadium on the final day of the last PL campaign.
The merseysiders officially made major announcement today that Benteke will be wearing the iconic number 9 shirt. Lambert was the previous owner of the shirt but the England international left Anfield this summer to join West Brom.
As far as the transfer news is concerned, reports suggest that Barcelona playmaker Adama Traore is very close to signing for Liverpool and he will fly to merseyside for medical ahead of move.
The Spanish international who has a release clause of $16.4m in his contract provided 14 assists in the Segunda Division last season and can prove to be a brilliant signing for the Reds.
