Chelsea have reportedly entered the race to sign Aston Villa striker Christian Benteke, and hope to beat rivals Liverpool to his signature.

The Blues are looking for someone to come in and support Diego Costa on the goal-scoring front, with Didier Drogba set to leave.

According to the Express, Benteke has been identified as a potential option, and Jose Mourinho has been impressed with the way the Belgian has finished the season.

Brendan Rodgers had already made the 24-year-old his number one striking target this summer and was hoping to wrap up a deal early on in the window.

But it now looks as though he could have a battle on his hands to sign the highly-rated centre-forward.

Reports suggest that Tim Sherwood is desperate to keep his star man, but will not stand in his way if he expresses a desire to join one of the country‰Ûªs biggest clubs.
