He explained in the Mirror: "He has lost his way alarmingly this season and Arsenal could help him to rediscover his mojo if they could pinch him.
"Villa have found a way to get results without him and you just wonder whether they have resigned themselves to raking in a decent fee for him next month and using it on reinforcements to get themselves out of trouble.
"They wouldn’t get the £25million they wanted off Spurs for him in the summer.
"Benteke would give Arsenal something they don’t have. He is a wrecking ball.
"If you look at the strikers in the 16 Champions League teams left, not many of them are similar to him."
