Juventus are interested in a move for Liverpool striker Christian Benteke and £19million will be enough to secure him, reports Gazzetta dello Sport.

The Italian champions look set to lose Alvaro Morata this summer with Real Madrid looking likely to take him back to the Bernabeu.

They put a release clause in the deal that took him to Italy, and are keen to activate it then sell him on to make a tidy profit on the Spaniard in this summer transfer window.

Should he leave as expected, the club will look to replace him and have already drawn up a list of targets. Liverpool striker Christian Benteke is among those being considered, with him looking likely to leave Anfield after a disastrous first year.

He failed to establish himself at the club following a big money move from Aston Villa and according to Gazzetta dello Sport Jurgen Klopp’s team will accept £19million for the Belgian.

He is not the only Belgian they are targeting as potential replacements for Morata though, with the same report claiming that Romelu Lukaku and Michy Batshuayi are also on their list.
