The Belgian has become Reds manager Brendan Rodgers’ seventh signing of the summer transfer window following the arrivals of James Milner, Adam Bogdan, Danny Ings, Joe Gomez, Roberto Firmino and Nathaniel Clyne.
The arrival of Benteke on Merseyside should go someway into helping the club rediscover their goalscoring touch as their troubles in that department were well documented last season as they failed to cope with the departure of Luis Suarez to Barcelona and Daniel Sturridge’s multiple injury problems.
With the powerhouse signing a long-term deal, many Kop supporters will be hoping he can hit the ground running as soon as possible as they face the likes of Arsenal and both Manchester clubs in their opening seven away fixtures of the new season.
Take a look at how a selection of Reds fans have reacted to the news that Benteke has completed his move to Merseyside.
