The addition of Christian Benteke could make Liverpool challengers again

Aston Villa v Everton - Premier League

This summer's transfer window will be make or break for many players at Liverpool.

The club has been suffering from a major decline and heartache, two seasons ago we witnessed football that no one could anticipate.

Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge firing from all cylinders, there was not a team in the country that could keep them quiet. Liverpool Football Club was proud once again to be in the fight for the title, only to infamously let it slip.

We could not believe the club would get the chance to win the title again after 20 years of wait. Ultimately, the wait goes on.

Where did it all go wrong?

Faulty defensive errors at vital times in important games proved costly. However, the biggest mistake might have been trusting Daniel Sturridge's fitness.

With his injury history would any club place faith in that one man alone? The overall majority would more than likely say no.

The striker was immense throughout the 2013-2014 season but once injury hit him the following year and Suarez left to sign for Barcelona. Both spearheads of the attack had effectively departed.

Last summer's arrivals were very poor, very costly and very risky with expenditure hitting the roof.

Is this summer's business looking more successful?

The acquisition of Nathaniel Clyne, a brilliant coup in the right back position where Liverpool have had major issues with.

It is a weak spot that was exploited time and time again by opposition wings throughout last season so the England international is a step-up from the ageing Glen Johnson.

The biggest coup of them all could be Christian Benteke, the Belgian has proved his ability throughout his time in the Premier league with previous club Aston Villa.

It has received plenty scrutiny following the failures of Andy Carroll, Mario Balotelli and Rickie Lambert.

But in contrast to Balotelli and Lambert, the £32.5 million man has a much larger sell on value, he is only 25 years of age and has a very professional approach, what could possibly go wrong?

His desire to be the number one striker in the league is certainly possible but he will need help from the wings may even encourage Brendan Rogers to alter his style to accommodate the Belgian.

Big Ben has many critics to prove wrong but he has all the attributes to become a solid, reliable goal-getter.

A class act and like a clock waiting to strike within the hour.
