The Aston Villa attacker is widely expected to leave Villa Park in the summer and has been heavily linked with a move to Liverpool.
However, The Mirror reports that Chelsea are willing to land a massive blow to the Reds by signing the Belgian international.
With Didier Drogba looking to be heading towards the exit door at Stamford Bridge, Jose Mourinho is believed to be wanting to add another quality striker in addition to Diego Costa and Loic Remy.
Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is looking to overhaul his attack following a disappointing season and is understood to be desperate to bring Benteke to Anfield with flops Mario Balotelli and Rickie Lambert seemingly on the way out in the summer.
Aston Villa are keen to hold onto Benteke, with The Mirror reporting that the club value the striker at around £30m.
