Christian Benteke

Christian Benteke has had a storming season for Aston Villa since arriving from Genk for just £7million in the summer.

The Beligum international has 11 goals and four assists in just 23 performances, causing a number of top Premier League clubs to take notice.

But what makes Benteke’s move to Arsenal more likely is that the 22-year-old has openly expressed he is a Gunners fan and would love to play or them one day.

However, Villa boss Paul Lambert has denied his talismanic forward is going anywhere, and believes Benteke has at least doubled his worth already this season.

Should Aston Villa go down however, they may have little choice but to sell Benteke to the highest bidder.
