Tottenham aim to beat off competition for Aston Villa striker Christian Benteke, according to Daily Star.
Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas is looking to shake-up his options in attack, with at least one of Emmanuel Adebayor and Jermain Defoe set to leave in the summer.
The Portuguese manager is hoping to sign up to three new strikers, with Aston Villa star Christian Benteke the first name on his hit-list.
Aston Villa are desperate to keep hold of the talented forward after his amazing debut season, but Spurs are hoping a bid in the region of £15 million would prove difficult to refuse.
Daily Star understands that the Belgium international has already decided to leave the club at the end of the current campaign, and Tottenham are, therefore, looking to close the deal as soon as possible and thus beat their rivals for the player’s signature.
Benteke, 22, who has scored 14 goals in 28 Premiership games this term, is also followed by Arsenal, Inter and Manchester City.
