Benteke will make us unbeatable – Toure

Benteke is expected to finalise his move to Anfield on Wednesday and could be the Reds’ last signing of the summer, although fresh speculation suggests they are also interested in Paris Saint-Germain left-back Lucas Digne.

Even without any further additions, Toure believes Brendan Rodgers has built a side capable of challenging for the Premier League title this season.

“Benteke is a great player,” Toure told the Liverpool Echo.

“It’s much better to have him on my side than have to play against him.

“He’s so strong and powerful – we all know about his qualities.

“He’s a goalscorer but his mental strength is very important.

“I’ve played against some good strikers who are mentally weak.

“Benteke isn’t weak, he stands up for himself. No matter what happens on he pitch, he will perform.

“The club has done some unbelievable business this summer and it’s going to be a big season for us.

“I see so much talent in this squad. So much will be played in the mind.

“If we are strong mentally then I don’t think anyone can beat us with the team the manager has built.”
