Benteke has been watched on several occasions by Villa, and Lambert is now believed to be lining up a £6million bid.
The 21-year-old Belgium international has netted three times in five games this season after scoring 18 during the 2011-12 campaign in all competitions.
He also scored for his country for the first time in the 4-2 win over Holland earlier this month on what was his fifth cap.
Lambert has already signed the Feyenoord duo of central defender Ron Vlaar and midfielder Karim El Ahmadi this summer.
Now he is hoping to purchase Benteke who has three years remaining on his contract although sources close to Villa insist it is "far from being a done deal".
Former Standard Liege player Benteke has the physical presence that Villa have lacked up front since Emile Heskey parted company with the club at the end of last season.
