Spurs are odds-on at 4/7 with BetVictor to sign Christian Benteke this summer after the Aston Villa striker handed in a transfer request.
The Belgian front man enjoyed an impressive first season in the Premier League despite Villa’s relegation battle but he clearly sees his future away from Villa Park and Tottenham is considered his most likely destination.
BetVictor however, also report some interest from punters in both Arsenal, who are 10/1 from 14s to bag Benteke before the end of the transfer window, and Chelsea (5/1).
Speaking to Betrescue.com, BetVictor spokesperson Charlie McCann said: “With Jose Mourinho, seemingly, having missed out on Edison Cavani and Arsenal target Gonzalo Higuain still clicking his heels at Real Madrid perhaps Benteke to Spurs is not the done deal the betting would suggest but he would be a great signing for whatever club was fortunate enough to get his signature. Benteke destroyed Liverpool at Anfield last season and perhaps if Suarez gets his move away from Liverpool Brendan Rodgers might be another manager looking to add the striker to his squad.”
