Many Premier league clubs are rumoured to be preparing big money bids for Aston Villa striker Christian Benteke, but fans are unsure whether the thirteen-goal Belgian man will be the best fit for their respective clubs.
Tim Sherwood has recently revealed that it will take a bid of at least £32.5m to trigger the release clause in Benteke’s contract, but with Benteke demanding European football next season, the striker may look to force his way out of the club should a bid of below £32.5m come in.
Chelsea, Manchester United, Liverpool and Spurs are the four that are reportedly interested as they all look to strengthen their strike forces over the course of the summer transfer window.
Benteke managed to net thirteen times in the Premier League last season, but fans of the clubs linked with the striker are unsure if Benteke will be a success at their clubs. Or perhaps it will be too big of a risk considering the amount of money clubs are set to pay.
Benteke would be great for Chelsea, but he wouldn’t be at Liverpool. Simple as. Good players aren’t good everywhere. Differently styles.

Chelsea wants Benteke, Hazard wants him there. Good. CFC please firm up your interest. Benteke will be better for you than LFC.

Is Benteke actually any good as a striker? I mean I’ve seen him bang some goals but really, joining Chelsea?

Milner was a good start. Ings isn’t too bad for 5m, but Benteke for 32.5m? NO. Please don’t mess this window up… like all the others. #LFC

Sorry Eden, but I hope Jose and co do not take your kind words too seriously re Benteke. Good striker but I do not see him improving us #cfc
