Brentford have become accustomed to the success that they have received in recent years when it comes to developing player talent as they are now one of the Championship’s most exciting teams.
Manager Thomas Frank has made the team an excellent watch with their quick passing through the thirds up the pitch, and trying to get the ball from back to front as quickly as possible.
The majority of their starting XI have caught the eye at some stage across the current season with other teams sniffing around the talents at Griffin Park.
One player that has caught the attention of a club further up the pyramid is Said Benrahma, as Newcastle United come hunting for his signature reports The Northern Echo.
The winger has become a leading star on the left wing this season as his skillful runs and ability in the final third has seen other teams sit up and take notice.
Benrahma has been at the club since 2018 after joining from the French leagues, another successful signing that has been drafted in from across the channel with him subsequently having an excellent effect on the Bees senior squad.

Brentford fans may be worrying about losing one of their star forwards in the summer, however there is no need for them to worry just yet.
Across the past 18 months, the charismatic Frank has adapted to playing the Brentford way and has always had irons in the fire when it comes to replacing a player or two.
The Brentford manager never rests on his laurels and is always prepared for the worst scenario – which could be the case here.
He has already moved quickly to secure winger Tariqe Fosu from League One side Oxford United during last month’s January transfer window who could prove that he is the man to replace Benrahma if he was to move.
However, there is still the possibility that the talented winger won’t be leaving the Bees when the summer comes.
If Brentford were to secure a first promotion to the Premier League come May, then giving Benrahma a taste of top-flight action at the club that he has called home for the past year-and-a-half may be enough to get him to stay.
The winger is clearly enjoying life at the club in a team that can go as far as they want with an exciting manager.
Brentford fans shouldn’t worry just yet about losing one of their most talented stars.
