Revealed: Arsene Wenger will make a move for this striker if Jamie Vardy deal collapses


The agent of Liverpool striker Christian Benteke has refused to deny that the unsettled striker will leave the club during the summer transfer window.

Arsenal and Chelsea are both interested in making a move for the Belgium international.

The 25-year-old struggled to make an impact at Anfield since making his £32.5million move from Aston Villa.

But according to recent reports in England he is one of the main targets for the Arsenal boss if he fails to sign Jamie Vardy from Leicester City.

"The player has no Italian clubs chasing him, it's just rumours," agent Eris Kismet told Tutto Mercato Web.

"There was contact, but that was six months ago.

"He is a Liverpool player, we'll see what will happen.

"If Arsenal and Chelsea are interested? It's obvious that many clubs are interested in the lad but he is only focused on doing well at the 2016 Euro Championship.

"We will think about his future after that."
