Aston Villa fans are desperate for Steve Bruce to make a move for Christian Benteke in the January transfer window.
Benteke’s future at Crystal Palace has come into question, after the striker showed a selfish streak in the Eagles’ last match.
Benteke stole a last minute penalty away from usual taker Luka Milivojevic and proceeded to miss, as Palace could only manage to pick up a 2-2 draw with Bournemouth.
And Villa fans believe that Benteke could now be made available in January.
Bruce has already confirmed that a striker is on Villa’s wishlist in the new year, as his current options up-front are limited.
The claret and blues have suffered badly with injuries, leaving Keinan Davis as their only fit senior front-man as things stand.
Bringing Benteke back to Villa Park could prove problematic for Financial Fair Play reasons, but Villa fans are still keen to see Bruce try his luck.
Please @Dr_TonyXia every villa fans dream! To have this man back! He’d fire us up to the prem— Aston Villa Updates (@AstonVilla_info) December 10, 2017
Definitely the experience we need. Davis is doing a job but not sustainable if we want to guarantee promotion.— Claret Villans (@ClaretVillans) December 10, 2017
Would love him back— Christopher Bloore (@ChrisBloore) December 10, 2017
