Wednesday media watch [20.02.13 PM]: Agbonlahor in focus


Express and Star: Gabby Agbonlahor today turned up the heat ahead of Aston Villa's trip to Arsenal after he claimed Christian Benteke can do better than a move to the Gunners. Villa are set to field a number of enquiries for the Belgium international in the summer after his agent indicated he may leave the claret and blues following an impressive debut campaign since his £7m transfer from Genk.

ClubCall: Gabriel Agbonlahor and Charles N'Zogbia are set to hand Aston Villa a double fitness boost ahead of Saturday's clash with Arsenal. Agbonlahor missed the 2-1 home win over West Ham through illness while N'Zogbia limped out of the match with a thigh problem.

Goal.com: Aston Villa youngster Ashley Westwood has hailed Charles N'Zogbia's recent performances as the club continue to fight against relegation from the Premier League. The Frenchman has failed to replicate his form for Wigan which prompted the Villa Park outfit to part with £9 million to sign the winger in 2011.

Setanta Sports: Gabriel Agbonlahor expects Christian Benteke to attract interest from some of the biggest clubs in the Premier League following his impressive debut season for Aston Villa. Benteke joined Villa from Genk in the summer and has already become a firm favourite with the fans thanks to his 15 goals, but his success could lead to his departure as both Arsenal and Tottenham have been linked with a move for the 22-year-old.

Best Of The Rest
