Christian Benteke says he will sit down for talks with Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp before making a final decision on his future.

The Belgium international struggled throughout his first season at Anfield following a £32m ($46m) move from Aston Villa. While he has chipped in with 10 goals, the 25-year-old was unable to hold onto a first-team role, having started just 14 times in the Premier League this season despite Daniel Sturridge's persistent injury troubles.

Benteke accused Klopp of ignoring him earlier this season, and while he is keen to remain on Merseyside, insists he needs assurances from his manager.

Asked if he is happy to remain at Liverpool, Benteke said: "Of course, I signed for five years. I didn't sign for one year. But now I must speak with the manager and see his plan for next season. My first season was not easy but I keep going. I never doubt myself. I am going now to focus on the Euros and we will see next season."

Benteke was once again left on the Liverpool bench in the Europa League final defeat to Sevilla, coming off the bench with just seven minutes of the match remaining. While he was unavailable due to injury in the quarter-final meetings with Borussia Dortmund, the Belgian failed to start in ties home and away to both Manchester United and Villarreal.

Under Klopp, Divock Origi has risen above Benteke in the striking pecking order and would have perhaps ended the season as the club's first-choice striker, had he not been sidelined with an ankle injury after a crunching challenge during the Merseyside derby on 20 April.
