Agbonlahor feels 22-year-old Benteke could play on an even higher stage, although he hopes the Belgian international will remain at Villa beyond this season.
Agbonlahor said: "Christian is one of the players of the season for me so far.
"He's going to get linked with the top clubs, especially because of his age. He's young. He's gifted in what he can do so he's going to be linked with a lot of clubs.
"He's showed that by the way he plays with his composure for a big guy and he has quite a bit of pace as well.
"There are many aspects of his game that are at the top level."
