The Mail on Sunday says Benteke will undergo a medical in London on Monday after Liverpool struck a deal with Aston Villa on how his £32.5million transfer fee will be paid.

Liverpool moved into pole position to sign the Belgium international when they banished their initial reservations about his value and decided to meet the release clause in his contract on Thursday.

Benteke, for whom personal terms will be a formality, could not press ahead with a medical assessment until Liverpool had finalised a plan with Aston Villa on how they would structure the payments.

After lengthy negotiations, they have now made a breakthrough with the first instalment paid to Villa set to be £16m.

After his medical, Benteke will join up with new Liverpool teammates Roberto Firmino and Philippe Coutinho, who are due back at Melwood on Wednesday.
