That news has seen several top Premier League clubs linked with a move for the Belgian striker. These include Chelsea, Manchester United, Tottenham and Liverpool.
Benteke exploded onto the Premier League scene over two years ago now, but suffered a serious injury which halted his progression. Since Sherwood has taken the helm at Villa park though, Benteke has rediscovered his old explosive form.

Liverpool fans seem particularly scared of another expensive flop joining the club, comparing a potential deal to that of the £35million Andy Carroll purchase.

Here’s what the fans are saying about a potential deal involving Benteke this summer:
