Sherwood: No offers for Benteke

Benteke, who has scored 12 goals in his last 12 games, is reportedly a summer transfer??target for Liverpool and Arsenal, but Sherwood claims he has received no offers for??the forward.

The 24-year-old, who joined Villa from Genk in August 2012, is expected to lead the line when??Villa face Arsenal in the FA Cup final at Wembley on Saturday. ??

Speaking at a press conference ahead of the clash with Arsenal, Sherwood shot down??the rumours about Benteke leaving, saying: “We have no offers for Christian and it’s??not worth talking about until we do.
