Atletico line up Benteke to replace Falcao

Aston Villa striker Christian Benteke could be the subject of a summer bid from Atletico Madrid, AS has revealed.

Los Colchoneros seem to have come to terms with losing Radamel Falcao Garcia in the summer and they are actively searching for his replacement.

A number of high-profile forwards have been linked with a switch to Vicente Calderon of late, with Aston Villa’s Christian Benteke also on their wish list.

Atletico Madrid officials held talks with the player’s representative after the Copa del Rey final last Friday, which is enough to suggest they are seriously considering a summer bid for the player’s services.

Aston Villa will have problems keeping hold of the Belgian international after he largely impressed in his first ever Premier League campaign.

It was Benteke’s goals that ultimately helped the Villans beat the drop, with the 22-year-old netting 19 times in 34 Premier League appearances.
