Christian Benteke's agent has said the striker is focused on keeping Aston Villa in the Premier League, but could leave this summer.
The Belgium international has been a revelation for Paul Lambert's Premier League strugglers since his £8million arrival from Genk in the summer. And without Benteke's 15 goals the side would almost certainly be staring relegation to the Championship in the face.
However, the 22-year-old's form for Villa has alerted several top Premier League clubs, including Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur who are thought to be pondering a summer swoop.
As a result Benteke's representative Eris Kismet has suggested that the player would consider a move if all parties concerned were happy. But in the meantime he insists that he is solely focused on keeping Villa up.
"It is normal that if you go to a club and do well, then other clubs will show an interest," said Kismet in the Daily Telegraph.
"Christian has shown that he can play in England 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.
"If all three parties are agreeable, something could happen, but right now his focus is on Villa, helping them stay in the Premier League."
