Liverpool are hoping to tie up three deals in the coming weeks as Brendan Rodgers bids to overhaul his squad, including Christian Benteke.

The Belgian striker has been linked with a move to Anfield this summer after impressing for Aston Villa in the latter half of the Premier League season.

The Reds have been desperate to find a suitable replacement for Luis Suarez, who left the club last summer for Barcelona.

Mario Balotelli has proven a poor replacement thus far, but the Italian is now likely to face competition from Benteke, who edges closer to a Merseyside move.

Rodgers is also keen on much wanted English defender Joe Gomez. The youngster has been impressing and performed at a high level for Charlton Athletic last season.

Meanwhile, the Reds are attempting to reignite talks with Southampton over right back Nathaniel Clyne.

Clyne has been strongly linked to Manchester United but Liverpool are hoping recent dealings with the Saints make them favourites.
