Christian Benteke Aston-Villa

With the summer transfer window now open, there is plenty of gossip doing the rounds in the newspapers so we’ll keep you up-to-date with the latest transfer rumours. Today, Tottenham are lining up a £20m move for Christian Benteke while Liverpool are linked with a move for Aly Cissokho.

Spurs plan Benteke raid

First up and the Sun are reporting that Tottenham plan to make a £20m move for Aston Villa striker Christian Benteke during the closing stages of the summer transfer window.

The report claims the powerful Belgian is a top target for the north Londoners this summer but Aston Villa are understood to be determined to hang on to him and have slapped  a huge £30m price-tag on his head to warn off potential interest.

However, this doesn’t appear to have put off Spurs chairman Daniel Levy with the Sun suggesting he’s keen to lure the 22-year-old to White Hart Lane this summer and hopes a late move will see him be able to land the Villains top goal-scorer from last season for just £20m.

Benteke scored an impressive 23 goals in his first season at Villa Park after making a £7m move from Genk last summer and Emmanuel Adebayor is likely to be sold by Spurs in order to make room for the Belgian international.

Liverpool eye Cissokho

Next up and the Mirror are reporting that Liverpool have switched their attention to Valencia defender Aly Cissokho after missing out on the signature of Lucas Digne.

The report claims the Reds have been chasing Digne for some time but with the 19-year-old set to join Monaco, Brendan Rodgers has been forced to look at other targets and is now hopeful of picking up a bargain in Spain.

Valencia are one of several Spanish clubs who’re facing financial problems and the Mirror suggest Rodgers is keen to take advantage and plans to land Cissokho on the cheap, with the Northern Irishman hoping a bid of £4m will be enough to persuade the La Liga outfit into selling.

The left-back only joined Valencia from Lyon last summer and made 20 appearances during his debut season, but the 25-year-old could be set for another move and it appears Anfield could be his next destination.

    keep laughing at the benteke to spurs for £20m , lambert has already said £30m to £40m would need to be bid to have any chance of prizing him away. typical Levy and his friends in the london based media trying to engineer a cheap move for villas most prized asset , come on chelsea or arsenal make a bid and break them spuds hearts 🙂
