Christian Benteke has 15 Premier League goals to his name already this season, and it's difficult to find faults in the 22-year-old Belgian. 

It has come to no surprise that Arsenal, Liverpool and Tottenham are all reportedly interested in the talented youngster and it speaks volumes of the impact he has had on the Premier League strugglers.

With Tottenham playing 4-2-3-1 most of the year, they will need to bring in a large striker that can get on the end of the quality balls being played in by the duo of Aaron Lennon and Gareth Bale.

Benteke has also proved he has the ability to hold the ball well, meaning he would be perfect for Andre Villas-Boas' side.  

At 6ft 3 the towering forward is an intimidating force to have in the box, whether it be for attacking or defending set pieces, Benteke has proven he is a power that even the most experienced defenders can struggle to outmatch. 

With both of Spurs' senior strikers scoring a joint 13 Premier League goals this season, it shows that they have had to rely on others to chip in due to the lack of quality in the box

Meanwhile Benteke has showed this season that he has an ability tp score many goals, as he's in the top five goal-scorers in the league, despite being in a relegation threatened side. 

With the tight-purse of Daniel Levy at the head of the Club, as well as a new stadium in development, Tottenham can not take many financial risks especially with the price of common players rising every day.

If Aston Villa drop down a tier in the league next season, Benteke will be able to be prised away from the wailing hands of Villa for a price half of what he is really worth - although problems may occur if they stay up as they well expect a marquee fee for one of their star players.

Benteke seems to be the perfect fit for the glove that is Tottenham, with the regrets of not purchasing a striker in January already in the back of Spurs fans minds, they will want Daniel Levy to do his utmost to bring the forward to White Hart Lane.

Tottenham or not, the more the season goes on, the chances of Benteke strolling across Villa Park in Claret and Blue next season are ever decreasing.
