According to reports from England, Roma are indeed interested in Aston Villa striker Christian Benteke.

The Daily Mail reports that “Roma have earmarked Christian Benteke as a potential January target. Benteke, who is showing glimpses of his old form at Villa, is also on the wishlist for some Champions League sides while he has also been discussed at Manchester City. Roma are expecting offers for Mattia Destro and see Benteke as an ideal replacement.”
