Said Benrahma TEAMtalk

Arsenal are tracking Brentford star Said Benrahma and have joined the race to sign the Algerian, claims a report.

The Gunners are set to make checks on the 24-year-old winger in the coming months as they ponder a move for the player in the summer.

The Telegraph report that Mikel Arteta’s men have an interest in the attacker, who blasted a hat-trick in the 5-1 thumping at Hull last week.

The right winger, who was an initial £1.5m signing from Nice in 2018, has hit eight goals this term on the back of an 11-goal haul last season.

He has become highly regarded in the Championship with some Bees fans claiming he’s the best player in the league; our sources last term suggested the Bees rate him in the £30million bracket.



Arsenal’s interest is not completely fresh, having been linked with the player during Unai Emery’s reign last year.

Tottenham, Arsenal, West Ham and Crystal Palace were all watching Benrahma last term – whilst we can also reveal Borussia Dortmund and AC Milan have also checked on him.

This season Newcastle and Leicester are also chasing the forward, who is under contract until 2022, with another 12-month option available to the Bees.
