Christian Benteke was enjoying some relaxation time on Saturday afternoon amid growing speculation surrounding his future.

The Aston Villa striker is currently being linked with a summer move away from Birmingham amid reported interest from Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur.

The 24-year-old striker scored 13 goals and made two assists in 29 Premier League games this season to help Tim Sherwood’s men beat the drop.

But the Belgium international wasn’t paying any attention to the recent transfer speculation as he made the most of his Saturday.

Benteke wrote on his Instagram page: “Enjoy the day”

Liverpool are thought to be keen on luring the forward to Anfield as Brendan Rodgers bids to bolster his strike-force ahead of next season.

However, the Reds could face competition from their bitter rivals United for the striker’s signature.
