All the latest summer transfer news from Anfield...
The Belgian striker, 24, ended the season with 11 goals in nine games under Tim Sherwood, but his future his now up in the air as a result.
Sherwood recently told Sky Sports that there is a £32.5m release clause in Benteke's contract, meaning Villa could lose their star striker this summer.
However, the London Evening Standard report that Benteke would reject a move to Tottenham - because he wants to join Liverpool.
Brendan Rodgers has already snapped up Danny Ings and Roberto Firmino to boost his frontline, but snapping up a centre forward like Benteke could cap off Liverpool's summer spending.
The Daily Mail recently suggested that Liverpool are eyeing the Swedish Under-21 defender as a potential summer addition, and Augustinsson says that it's 'cool' to be linked with a move to Anfield.
"It’s great that there are rumours of such a big club. As my agent said, he has heard about them, but anything more I don’t know," said Augustinsson. "It’s really cool but I’m focusing on now," he added.
