The 22-year old Belgium international is attracting plenty of interest after he scored 19 Premier League goals in his debut season for Aston Villa and fellow Belgian Hazard feels he has what it takes to make it at the very top level.
"Benteke is my friend. We get on very well," he said.
"He had an unbelievable first season for a young striker in the Premier League.
"His dream is to play even higher. I think he's got all the attributes to do well at a big club."
