Christian Benteke has handed in a transfer request to force out a move from Aston Villa who bought the Belgian for £7 million from Genk last summer.

He has decided to not to take part in Aston Villa’s pre-season tour in Germany and it is thought that the people around him like his agent have strongly advised him to force a move out from Villa where he had a fantastic season by scoring 19 goals in the league and played a big part in keeping Villa a float.

Tottenham look like firm favourites at 8/11 to capture the Belgian international after Benteke said a move to Tottenham would be his preferred destination and believes he can get regular football there. But Aston Villa and Tottenham are currently on bad terms after a collapse in a loan deal for Jenas.

Chelsea are also said to be interested and Villa are encouraging them to pay the £25 million price tag but Benteke does not believe he will get regular football at such a top club so that puts Chelsea in second to get the striker.

Reports from Tottenham say that they are not willing to pay the £25million and are going to wait it out to see if they can lower the price. What do you think Benteke is worth?
