Christian Benteke's agent says that the Aston Villa striker could leave Villa Park this summer for a bigger club.

Christian Benteke's agent has reportedly said that the striker could leave Aston Villa this summer.

Benteke, 22, has been a star for struggling Villa since joining last summer, scoring 15 goals already this term.

Benteke's agent, Kismet Eris, told The Mirror: "It is normal that if you go to a club and do well, then other clubs will show an interest.

"So why not take the step up to the next level if the opportunity is there?

"At the end of the season interested clubs will talk to Villa - but it has to be right for Villa, the buying club and Christian."

Atletico Madrid and Borussia Dortmund were the latest two European clubs to be linked with a move for Benteke.
