Benteke is in the search of more frequent first-team football and could be ready to leave Liverpool in order to find more playing time, reports the Daily Mail.

Benteke has not been the preferred choice at Liverpool under manager Jurgen Klopp, and has typically been chosen behind Divock Origi and Daniel Sturridge. While Benteke isn't expected to force a transfer he has been clear that he is searching for more playing time.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Benteke headed in the equalizer on his lone shot off the bench in Wednesday's 1-1 draw to Chelsea.

With Liverpool battling on two fronts, Benteke has seen a fairly extensive amount of playing time of late. He's fully taken advantage of the situation scoring two goals and an assist in his last four games. Despite only 13 Premier League starts this season, with Liverpool staring at the huge Europa League final on May 18, he may be given another start in Championship Sunday versus the inferior Baggies.

Benteke was the lone forward to appear for Liverpool in their 2-0 win Sunday over Watford. He assisted on the first goal scored by Joe Allen.

With Daniel Sturridge starting in Europa League play Thursday, Benteke was given the start and played 90 minutes against Watford. It's a toss up for who Jurgen Klopp will start against Chelsea midweek.

Benteke came on at the half and scored on his only shot during Sunday's loss to Swansea.

Benteke did hardly anything statistically in his 45 minutes of action, but he was on hand to nod home a corner kick to bring Liverpool within one. He hasn't started a match since February, and it will be difficult to endorse his selection for fantasy purposes if he continues to come off the bench.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Benteke (knee) is a late fitness test ahead of Saturday's match against Newcastle.

Benteke, who hasn't played since March 20, has returned to training with the first-team. However, manager Jurgen Klopp seems more reserved as to Benteke's progress. Even when fit, Benteke's made just 12 starts against 13 appearances off the bench in the Premier League. His first season on Merseyside has been a massive disappointment, scoring seven goals in the Premier League, but hasn't had the same kind of influence the team thought he would when he was brought in for tens of millions of pounds over the summer.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Benteke (knee) was unable to train Thursday and appears unlikely to play Saturday against Spurs, the Liverpool Echo reports.

Benteke did not play for Belgium over the international break due to the ailment, and his absence will all but assure Daniel Sturridge keeps his starting job.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Benteke left Belgium's squad for next week's match versus Portugal after suffering a knee injury, the Liverpool Echo reports.

The striker seemingly cannot catch a break at the moment, as he had struggled to find playing time for his club but appeared set to feature for his country. After the injury blow, however, he will return to England and receive treatment in hopes of being available for next week's match versus Tottenham.

West Ham has singled out Benteke as one of their priority transfer targets this summer, reports Sky Sports.

West Ham is looking for players that will help them achieve their European dreams, and they see Benteke as a top European forward. Reports suggest the team may be willing to spend up to 40 million to land a top forward like the Liverpool player.
