Chelsea set to beat Liverpool bid to the signing of 24-year-old star striker?

BentekeChelsea fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are quietly confident heading into the Football Transfer Tavern after the Daily Mirror revealed they are considering a move for Aston Villa forward Christian Benteke.

The Belgian powerhouse is a target for Liverpool and at this stage it would be considered that the Blues are looking to hijack Brendan Rodgers’ target.

The newly crowned Premier League champions have been a complete side throughout the season but they do lack support for Diego Costa.

And Mourinho has kept tabs on Benteke throughout his tough season as he has found himself stuck in a relegation fight at Villa Park.

But the arrival of Tim Sherwood has revitalised his form, similarly like when Villa boss revived Emmanuel Adebayor’s career at Spurs, and it has reminded punters of Benteke’s potential.

Mourinho currently has Loic Remy and Didier Drogba to support Costa, but it seems as though their 37-year-old club legend, Drogba, will hang up his boots at the end of the season.

Chelsea fans. Do you think it is a no brainer, should the club pursue Christian Benteke? Let us know your thoughts below.
