Chelsea to beat Liverpool and secure £30m deal for in-form striker?

Christian BentekeChelsea fans here inside the Football Transfer Tavern are liking what they are reading in the Express – with the publication claiming that the Blues are prepared to pay up to £30 million to land Aston Villa striker Christian Benteke.

The Belgian forward has been in excellent form for Tim Sherwood’s Aston Villa of late, and his impressive displays have caught the attention of both Chelsea and Liverpool.

As our landlord here in the Tavern quips, Chelsea are in need of a new striker to complement Diego Costa next season – with Didier Drogba just not seeming like the player he once was.

A large group of Chelsea fans choosing the next song on the jukebox here in the Tavern feel this would be a shrewd purchase, with many feeling at the age of 24 – the star still has a lot to offer the Premier League.

Chelsea fans…. What do you make of this news? Would you like to sign Benteke in the summer? Let is know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!
