Tottenham are making Aston Villa ace Christian Benteke their No1 summer transfer target.

The Mirror says they will face fierce ­competition from Arsenal for he 22-year-old Aston Villa front man has made a huge impact this season following his £7million move last August from Belgian club Genk.

Villa would want at THREE times what they paid for him - and there will be no shortage of takers at £20million-plus.

Tottenham will head that queue. Their failure to score enough goals has left them trailing behind Arsenal and Chelsea - the two rivals for a top four spot in the Premier League that will bring the chance of Champions League football.
