Defending Premier League Champions Manchester City are targeting Aston Villa striker Christian Benteke, according to the Sun.
Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini is eyeing a striker his month. The boss has already suffering with striker problems, duo strikers Sergio Aguero and Edin Dzeko both are out with their injuries.
The City boss also played without a proper striker in the few games last month when Stevan Jovetic was also out. However, he has returned and is now playing.
The reports claimed earlier today that City are weighing up a move for the Belgian striker Christian Benteke who is having a struggling season at Villa Park.
A drop in Belgian’s form has been seen since his return from the injury in 2013-2014 season. He has scored only two goals in 11 appearances so far in the Premier League this term.
The 24-year-old is still capable of producing goals. His first season at Villa Park was exceptional and he could revive if he gets a chance in a better club.
The Citizens have also eyed Swansea City striker Wilfired Bony who could be on his way out this month, according to Telegraph. Spanish giants Real Madrid are also interested in his move.
