Aston Villa striker Christian Benteke is back on the agenda of Atletico Madrid.

Fresh from his spectacular double against Norwich City, Benteke is again being linked with Atletico as a replacement for Diego Costa.

AS says Atletico's board are determined not to be caught out should a big offer arrive for Diego Costa at the end of the season and have identified Benteke as the player they want should they lose their star man.

Atletico are confident they can tempt Benteke away from Villa with the promise of regular Champions League football and the chance to spearhead Diego Simeone's exciting young team.
