The Belgian scored 19 goals for Aston Villa in his debut season in the Premier League, and after rejecting speculation from Spurs last summer, stayed at the Midlands club to add a further 10 to his name in an injury-hit second season. The 6ft 2inch striker is a fantastic target man, ready to hold the ball until midfielder reinforcements arrive, or to turn and unleash a ferocious and precise strike on goal.
An aerial threat and danger with the ball at his feet, Benteke would surely add goals for Spurs. Scoring 29 goals in two seasons at a struggling Villa with limited service, you imagine the Belgian would excel at White Hart Lane, in both the Premier League and Europa League. The only downside with Benteke is that he is a similar. The only downside is that he is fairly similar to Emmanuel Adebayor, who suddenly jumped into the first team under Tim Sherwood. Pochettino may not want two big strong strikers together.
