Interested faces are looking up from pints here at the Football Transfer Tavern as it is claimed by the The Enfield Independent that North London rivals Arsenal and Spurs are set to clash once again – this time for Belgian international Christian Benteke.
The forward has made a huge impact on the Premier League since arriving at Aston Villa and despite seeing red this weekend is one of the main reasons that Paul Lambert’s men have stood any chance of staying in the top flight.
The 23-year-old may have claimed that he wants to repay the faith shown in him by Villa yet the chance of a move to a top club in the league may well prove too much to resist and that is exactly what both Arsene Wenger and Andre Villas-Boas are counting on as they look set to move for the forward.
Both clubs are in dire need of another forward and despite the clubs being linked to the likes of Gonzalo Higuain and Stevan Jovetic, it seems a proven Premier League hitman is also high on their lists, hence the rumoured move for the Belgian international who has netted 23 times in 39 appearances this term.
Should either side wish to land the player, they will have to cough up at least £20 million before Villa will even entertain the notion of a move.
Is Benteke worth £20m and will he move to either of North London’s finest? Rate this rumour below.
