Aston Villa ace attracting Serie A interest

Chrstian Benteke (Aston Villa)Juventus will look to Aston Villa striker Christian Benteke if they opt to sell Fernando Llorente in January, according to reports from talkSPORT.

The Burly Belgian has developed into one of the Premier League’s leading talents since his move to Villa Park last year, netting 23 goals in the top flight.

His performances have not gone unnoticed, with the likes of Tottenham and Chelsea having both been linked with his signature over the summer.

Juve are the latest side to have emerged as a potential suitor for the 22-year-old, and are keen to lure him away from England if they sell Llorente.

The World Cup-winning striker only moved to Turin a matter of months ago, but is already rumoured to be ready to leave in search of regular first-team action.

Fellow arrival Carlos Tevez has enjoyed the lion’s share of playing time, while the Spaniard has struggled to put himself ahead of a number of other players to play alongside the ex-Manchester City man.

Arsenal are thought to be ready to offer Llorente an escape route, which may put the wheels in motion for Benteke’s exit.

The youngster penned a new contract over the summer, but has already illustrated by handing in a transfer request in the past that he could be persuaded to leave Villa.

Should Aston Villa sell Christian Benteke while his stock is high?
