Benteke wants Klopp talks

Striker keen to sort his future

Christian Benteke wants to speak to Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp to determine whether or not he has a future at Anfield.

A £32.5million signing from Aston Villa last summer, Benteke started just 14 of Liverpool’s 38 Premier League games this season and found himself frozen out of the team following Klopp's arrival in October.

Having started just two of Liverpool's last 23 games, the Belgium international faces an uncertain future at Anfield with West Ham reported to be keen on signing him on loan and he hopes to speak to Klopp to establish if he is part of his plans for next season.

"Liverpool bought me with my strengths and weaknesses - of course I have to adapt to the manager, but now the season is over we want to try to speak with him and find a solution for next year," Benteke said.

Klopp is expected to ring the changes over the summer after missing out on European football and Benteke knows there will be some players leaving Anfield before the start of next season.

"Losing the final was a big disappointment as next year we play just Premier League and we have a big, big squad. We will play one game a week which is tough, so maybe the boss will make some choices," the striker added.

"There is going to be big changes as Liverpool is a massive club. But I signed for five years, not one, and I want to see the manager's plans.

"A lot of players want to know what is happening."
