Doubts reigns supreme over Christian Benteke's Aston Villa future, as Chelsea prepare to move in for the Belgian ace.

Benteke, 22, signed for Aston Villa last summer having caught the eye of manager Paul Lambert whilst playing for KRC Genk in his home nation.

Since joining the Midlands club, Benteke has racked up an impressive 19 goals in 34 appearances, drawing the attention of some of Europe's biggest clubs with his physical and powerful show-stopping performances.

Whilst the striker was crucial in Aston Villa's fight for Premier League survival, where Benteke will be playing his football next season is unclear, with speculation over new contract concerns refusing to go away.

Benteke is still to sign an extension to his initial deal, amidst talk that Jose Mourinho is set to make a swoop to bring him to Stamford Bridge.

According to, Chelsea are to turn their attentions towards the Villains' top scorer from last season, as Edinson Cavani appears destined for a move to Ligue 1 winners Paris Saint-Germain.

Until there is a final decision, the speculation will undoubtedly rumble on.
