Borussia Dortmund prepare bid for Villa striker Benteke

Borussia Dortmund are eyeing Aston Villa powerhouse Christian Benteke.

The Daily Mail says Dortmund's chief transfer negotiator made a personal check on Benteke against Chelsea and returned to Germany convinced the 22-year old has what it takes to lead their attack next season.

Benteke was sent off in Chelsea's 2-1 win, but Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc was more interested in the way he gave Villa an early lead.

Zorc flew straight from Birmingham to Porto where Jackson Martinez came under review. On returning to Dortmund, Zorc consulted with manager Jurgen Klopp and delivered a glowing report on Benteke.
