Gunners hopeful of bringing Belgium to north London this summer.
Arsenal have been alerted by the news that in-form Aston Villa front man Christian Benteke wants to leave Villa Park at the end of this season, reports the Daily Mirror.
fanatix tickets – Barclays Premier League tickets are still available for next weekend’s games.
Sunderland vs Arsenal tickets are on sale from £23 for this Saturday’s match at the Stadium of Light.
The Belgium international has enjoyed an outstanding debut campaign in the Premier League having arrived in the Midlands last summer from Genk for just £7 million, scoring an eye-catching 14 goals in only 27 matches to date.
And, it is that red-hot form in front of goal that has attracted the attentions of a number of ‘big-name’ clubs in the top flight, with the likes of Chelsea and champions Manchester City also reportedly said to be interested in the Zaire-born forward, while Liga outfit Atletico de Madrid are believed to be keeping close tabs on the player as well.
However, it is understood that if given a choice the 22-year-old would prefer a move to the Emirates this summer having been a Gunners supporter all his life, although one major stumbling block to a deal going through could be Villa’s reported £16m asking price, while City and Chelsea could also both offer a more lucrative financial package to the forward.
