Reports are out claiming that Arsenal are ready to compete for Aston Villa centre-forward Christian Benteke.
The Mail on Sunday reported that Arsenal are set to challenge Liverpool and Tottenham for Benteke if a move for Porto’s Jackson Martinez does not materialise.
Benteke led Villa’s attack against the Gunners in the 4-0 defeat in the FA Cup final but is set to be sold by the Midlands club.
It is understood Benteke’s buy out clause is around £32million.
Whether Liverpool or Spurs are prepared to go that high remains to be seen.
