Chelsea are reportedly considering a January move for Liverpool striker Christian Benteke.

The defending Premier League champions, who sacked manager Jose Mourinho on Thursday, want the Belgium international to fire the Blues up the league table after their woeful start to the 2015-16 campaign.

The 25-year-old, who only arrived at Anfield in a £32.5m deal from Aston Villa in the summer, has scored five goals in 16 appearances in all competitions for the Reds so far this season.

Now under caretaker charge with Guss Hiddink; Chelsea are understood to be weighing up a move for the towering hitman as Benteke has struggled to adapt to new boss Jurgen Klopp’s strategy and tactics since his arrival back in October.
