Arsenal, Tottenham head-to-head for Villa striker Benteke

Arsenal and Tottenham are chasing Aston Villa striker Christian Benteke.

The Express & Star says Villa boss Paul Lambert will still be more concerned about reports of renewed bids for Benteke's services in January.

Lambert claimed a personal triumph in the summer when he persuaded Benteke to stay - and sign an improved contract - after last season's survival-clinching top scorer had put in a transfer request.

But north London rivals Arsenal and Spurs are today back on his trail.
