Amid Spurs and Arsenal interest, this exciting playmaker must be praying for the summer to come sooner rather than later



Said Benrahma has become one of the most in-demand players in the country, after a string of impressive displays for Sky Bet Championship side Brentford this season.

The Algerian signed for the West London club from French Ligue 1 outfit Nice in the summer, and has lit up the division after a turbulent start to life at Griffin Park.

The playmaker failed to find his feet in English football in the early stages of the campaign, but has come into his own under the management of Thomas Frank, scoring 10 goals and producing 11 assists for the Bees.

The West London club have produced plenty of talented players over the last few years, with an attractive, attacking brand of football being installed right through the club – and at the age of 23-years old, Benrahma has a massive few years ahead of him for sure.

It seems as if the attacking midfielder’s form hasn’t gone unnoticed earlier, with a host of high-profile clubs tracking his signature. Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur, West Ham United, Borussia Dortmund and AC Milan are all believed to have checked in on the exciting attacker.

The Bees will obviously be reluctant to let their star-man leave in the summer, with reports claiming that they have slapped a £30million price tag on the Algerian, in an attempt to prize away any potential interest, or cover their own backs if he does indeed leave.

A move to the Premier League is often the dream for most young footballers, especially ones who leave their native country to come to England, and with the Bees lying in the bottom half of the Sky Bet Championship table, Benrahma must be praying for the summer to come sooner rather than later.

His next move needs to be perfect, as it could make or break his career. Would he get into the Arsenal or Tottenham side? Perhaps not – but a move to the likes of either West Ham United or Crystal Palace, who are also interested in the winger, could be a smart choice from Benrahma.

He has real quality on the ball, a good head on his shoulders, and will be determined to prove himself in the top-flight with Brentford failing to challenge this term.
