This season here at the Football Transfer Tavern we have been more than impressed with the form of Christian Benteke and it seems that a host of clubs agree according to the Daily Mirror.
The forward has managed to oust Daren Bent from the Aston Villa starting line up and has been nothing short of brilliant in yet another poor season for the West Midlands outfit. The forward has managed to net 15 times thus far this season and has attracted interest from Spurs, Borussia Dortmund and Atletico Madrid – all of whom are doing much better than the relegation threatened Villa this season.
When asked about the player’s future, Benteke’s agent Kismet Eris noted that: “It is normal that if you go to a club and do well, then other clubs will show an interest. Christian has shown that he can play in England. So why not take the step up to the next level if the opportunity is there? At the end of the season interested clubs will talk to Villa – but it has to be right for Villa, the buying club and Christian.”
Of course, these are not exactly words of comfort for Villa fans and it seems that should an offer that suits both the club and player present itself then Paul Lambert could well lose the only player who has really looked the part this season.
