Christian Benteke is set to take the Liverpool No. 9 shirt from Rickie Lambert as the England striker nears a move to West Bromwich Albion.
Sources have told ESPN FC that Lambert was due to have a medical with West Brom on Friday, with Benteke to take on his squad number once the latter's move to The Hawthorns is confirmed.
Benteke will follow in the wake of a series of great Liverpool strikers including Ian Rush, Robbie Fowler and Fernando Torres to have worn the No. 9 shirt.
