Aston Villa: £10m Christian Benteke talk has fans reacting - Aston Villa Transfer Rumours

Many Aston Villa fans have reacted to some transfer gossip that claims former striker Christian Benteke is available for sale this summer for £10m.

Claret and Blue boss Dean Smith saw the likes of Mbwana Samatta, Keinan Davis and Wesley all struggle to find consistency last term.

Adding 26 goal striker Ollie Watkins from Brentford last week, Smith now has more firepower in his front line but further transfer gossip has emerged linking Lyon striker Bertrand Traore with a move to the club.

Further to that report linking the Burkina Faso striker with a Villa Park move, Birmingham LIVE have reported that Benteke is available for a small transfer fee of £10m.

The Belgian striker scored 49 goals in 101 appearances for Villa, whilst also supplying 12 assists for his former teammates.

Reacting to the gossip, some Villa fans gave a response via Twitter account @AVFC_News. However, it seems the majority are not keen on a reunion with the big striker, suggesting it would be a backwards step for the club.
