Lazio and Juventus are being linked with Aston Villa striker Christian Benteke.

The Daily Mail says Lazio are weighing up an offer in January but Villa would want around £30m if they agreed to let the prolific Belgian go.

Juventus are also keen on the former Genk forward, with summer signing Fernando Llorente unsettled in Turin.

Benteke handed in a transfer request at Villa during the summer but was quickly convinced to stay at the club, signing an improved four-year deal believed to be worth around £2million-a-season.
