I think someone who has pace and can beat a couple of players is the best way to go. For example someone similar to martial. Who that is I don't know.

On the subject of Lambert, if we was looking for a Benteke type (which i don't think we are) we could do a lot worse than Lambert in the short term until viable options become avaiable in the summer or whenever

The guy knows how Poch like to play, Poch got the best out of him, i guess would be happy to play second fiddle to Kane with little fuss. Its not as stupid as it sounds when you look for options off the bench to change a game

Anyway back on topic...

Because something suggests that Klopp isn't happy with him for some reason, he like Pochettino likes his players to work hard and press from the front and so far Benteke hasn't shown anything that either manager likes so what makes you think Poch can suddenly turn him into a the player that Klopp couldn't?

Besides I think we need a player who can play instead of as well as alongside Kane and Benteke is kind of one dimensional in that respect you either makehim the focal point of your attack or you don't play him at all, also it's worth pointing out that Kane is better suited to our setup as Kane is able to drop deep, drift wide and play players in/pick out passes, I wouldn't say that Benteke has that skillset in his locker.
It backs up what someone in the summer said about benteke being a lazy trainer. Poch or most managers won't stand for that.
