In the 2012/13 season, a bright young star emerged in the form of Aston Villa striker, Christian Benteke. 

Possessing great aerial ability, a superb shot and spectacular strength, Benteke has the qualities to make himself a real superstar in the world of football. 

During the 2012/13 season, Benteke played a crucial role in Aston Villa's survival by being involved in a majority of their goals either by scoring or providing assists for his team-mates.

Benteke finished the season with 19 goals which is incredible while he is so young and playing his first season in the Premier League. 

Still only 22-years-old the big Belgian has a bright future at whatever club he plays at and he has been linked with several top clubs since he handed in a transfer request. Since handing in the request, Benteke returned to training as normal which demonstrates his maturity in the situation. 

An Arsenal fan himself, Benteke would embrace a move to Arsenal without any hesitation to play for the club he admires. Arsenal reportedly have money to spend this season therefore they could afford to buy Benteke and meet Aston Villa's valuation, believed to be in the region of £25 million

If the Gunners do decide to buy Benteke, then he will offer them more firepower up-front with his ever-present goal threat and, due to his young age, be a part of the Arsenal team for many years to come.

This was only Benteke's first season in the Premier League and he can only get better. Also because of his young age, there will still be room for Benteke to improve and learn the English game even more.

Although some may consider him a one-season-wonder at this moment in time, it is unlikely that he will lose his terrific goal scoring ability as he still has potential to achieve and can adapt due to his young age. 

Young, powerful and agile, Benteke is a fantastic striker with a great eye for goal. 

After a spectacular debut season in the Premier League, Benteke showcased his talent for all to see and gained attention from the top Premier League clubs. 

Should Benteke complete a move to Arsenal, he will significantly increase the quality of their attack and, wherever he goes, show what a fantastic player he is.
