The rich may be getting richer, as Chelsea is planning to pursue Aston Villa’s best player, Christian Benteke.
Metro reports that the Blues are preparing to offer Benteke £30m to transfer to their squad.
Benteke has scored 11 goals in nine games for Aston Villa, and he is only 24 years old and will undoubtedly give Chelsea even more star power at forward.
They recently captured the Premier League title on the heels of forward Diego Costa and goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois, but they are looking to add more depth and competition at forward.
Aston Villa is close to falling down to the drop zone, as they are currently in 14th place in the Premier League with 35 points.
They are only two points ahead of Sunderland, who is in 18th place. It can only be tempting for Benteke to have a chance to unleash his full potential for a championship team.
Meanwhile, Aston Villa may not be in the Premier League in the 2015-16 season as they have two difficult matchups ahead of them in Southampton and Arsenal.
