Brentford manager, Thomas Frank has admitted that Arsenal target Said Benrahma can leave the Bees this summer.
The Algerian was one of the best players in the Championship last season and his fine form was responsible for them coming very close to getting a promotion to the Premier League before losing in the final of the Championship Playoffs to Fulham.
The club knows that their best players will have interested top Premier League sides and they have decided not to stand in their way.
Benrahma has emerged as a target for Arsenal for some time now and as they will now have to spend the season in the Championship again, he might look for a bigger challenge (The Express).
Arsenal has landed Willian as one of their new signings, but the news that Benrahma is now available for transfer might be too tempting for them to resist.
‘I can stop all that talking and say: we know there a lot of rumours about our players because we had a top season,’ Frank said via Mail Online.
‘It’s no secret that Ollie Watkins and Said Benrahma are players that other clubs are interested in and if the price is right then we’re open for potentially selling them. The rest are not for sale.’
His price tag might be a problem though, with the Mail report claiming that the Bees want £25m for him and Ollie Watkins.
25M for Said Benrahma isn’t much and Arsenal should get him of cus only after we’ve sorted our midfield.
Said reminds me of Prime Hazard.
He’s very technical and skillful, for 25M he wont be bad business.
Now that Ceballos is confirmed, Arsenal will focus on outgoing players and the real strengthening of the team begins. Party or Aouar or Partey & Aouar.
I’d really love to have Said Benrahma with us, though I don’t see any reason Arsenal would go after him for now
I love Benrahma’s close control and attacking with the ball. Would not be a bad idea to have in our team.
If Aouar is too expensive for Kroenke then Benrahma would not be a bad option.
Looking forward to having Partey in first then any one of Aouar or Benrahma would be a bonus for us.
Please Edu should prioritize the signing of Partey to seal the best transfer season for over a decade for us.
I just fear Ceballos might turn out to be our last incoming transfer of the window. I will be disappointed if that is the case.
I have news about Aouar, but I’m very reluctant to post it😂😂😂
Probably because I’m doubting this one myself, but then
again where I got this from is the same guy I’ve been getting our recent news from…Arsenal have agreed personal terms with Aouar, what remains is finding an agreement with Lyon. Negotiations still on.
Ooooh Eddie 😁👍
Sue Arteta wants the deal done quick😭😭
I love this man…
We’ll trigger Partey’s clause after signing Aouar
Hope you are aware that it’s extremely hard to have people hopes up with such wonderful news knowing that you’re always on point and straightforward with news.
Am already dreaming of the kind of bashing teams will bear from Arsenal with the addition of Aouar and Partey.
When what we spent and bought put shame on those who doubted us
Lol…Seroti I know so..Personally I’m still doubting it, that’s why I said I was reluctant but then I want it to be true a lot
The Lyon president has form, as a very difficult man to deal with. Here’s hoping.
Fingers kept crossed @Eddie. I feel it a great season ahead us already.
No doubt Benrahma and Watkins will end up in the PL, just can’t see it being with us..
Watkins is a gooner and it’s been suggested about him going to the spuds…to fit in well with all the other closet gooners, Kane, Sissoko, Aurier and Doherty 🤣
If we can get Aouar and Benrhama, it means we’ll have 3 explosive players in the team in Willian, Aouar and Benrahma. If this happens it also means we are back to the Fabregas days of explosive football with pace, skill and flair but with a better defense this time and the result would be titles upon titles for Arsenal. COYG!
