The Villa Park outfit have previously demanded as much as £25m for the Belgian but a recent run of average form may see Arsenal make a cut-price offer for the 22 year old, who only recently signed a new Aston Villa contract.
Benteke netted 22 goals in his first season in England, effectively keeping Aston Villa in the top tier in the process, but after starting the current season well the powerful forward he has now gone seven Premier League games without a goal.
Wenger has relied heavily on Olivier Giroud this season and appears keen to bring in a suitable striker to support the Frenchman and Benteke could be the ideal man for the job.
The chance to join a Champions League level club will certainly tempt Benteke and of course the added bonus for Wenger is that the Aston Villa man will not be cup tied from the competition.
