Liverpool transfer round-up: Benteke update, Onomah signs Tottenham contract extension

All the latest summer transfer news from Anfield...

According to Sky Sports, Christian Benteke is likely to be Liverpool's final summer signing, with the deal expected to be confirmed on Wednesday.

The Belgian striker underwent a medical on Monday, with the Aston Villa star poised to complete a huge £32.5m deal this week.

However, Sky Sports believe that, having already signed Adam Bogdan, Joe Gomez, Nathaniel Clyne, James Milner, Roberto Firmino and Danny Ings, Benteke could be Brendan Rodgers' final addition of the summer.

The report also states that any rumours of a move for Real Madrid midfielder Asier Illarramendi or Borussia Dortmund hero Marco Reus are 'nonsense'.

Another player recently linked with a move to Anfield is Tottenham midfielder Joshua Onomah, with the 18-year-old's contract situation being monitored by the Reds according to a report from The Sun.

However, Spurs have now confirmed on their official website that the teenage midfielder has penned a new four-year contract to stay at White Hart Lane.

That rules out any move to Liverpool, but given that the Reds are reportedly ending their summer business, it may not be too much of a blow for Rodgers.
