Man City transfer news
The Premier League champions are known to be targeting a new striker this winter after losing the likes of Sergio Aguero, Edin Dzeko and Stevan Jovetic to injury, and Benteke may now be their top target.
The Belgian international has missed much of the last year through injury, but was previously a top target for big names such as Arsenal and Chelsea after some fine goalscoring form in the Premier League.
Having recently returned to action, the 24-year-old now seems to be linked with some big bames again, as City possibly line up a January bid for his services.
