Arsenal have been linked with a move for Brentford forward Said Benrahma, according to The Telegraph.
The 24-year-old has been in solid form for the Bees this season, with Thomas Frank’s team sitting fifth in the Championship.
Benrahma has scored eight goals and registered six assists, including a brilliant hat-trick at Hull on Saturday.
He has also been linked with both Newcastle and Leicester City (The Sun).
The Algerian arrived at Griffin Park in 2018 costing the club £1.5 million from Nice (The Sun).
In total he has played 71 games for the Bees; bagging 19 goals and claiming 23 assists.
He is improving all the time and Premier League suitors are inevitably emerging.
It would appear that the only chance the Bees have of keeping their prized asset is by winning promotion; although even then they may be powerless.
Arsenal have drawn 13 of their 25 Premier League fixtures this season.
The Gunners are currently tenth in the top-flight and face the prospect of missing out on Europe.
It is thought that it could take up to £15 million to sign the man with three caps for Algeria.
Following news of Arsenal’s interest in Benrahma, supporters have taken to Twitter.
The vast majority seem to think the forward would represent a solid signing for the club.
Here is a selection of tweets from the Arsenal faithful following the link to Benrahma:
I know many people will write this signing off if it did happen, but to those who've watched Saïd Benhrama play, you'd know how talented he is. I personally want Arsenal to sign him!

Only issue this lad has is his attitude. Not much of a sound team player. If he gets disciplined and built a team man image, I'm okay with this signing.

He’s an absolute baller. Would love him at 10! He’s got an air or Tarabt about him.

I'm glad we've seen the light. I was just speaking about him yesterday with a fellow fan. Scored a hattrick on the weekend.

I watched brentfords game against hull city and benrahma was a class above, his style would suit arsenal to a tee. Could be for is what mahrez is to city.

Saïd Benrahma is a firm yes for me. The Championship is a talent factory at the moment and most of that talent has proven that they can make the step up to Premier League football rather seamlessly. We need a left-winger exactly in his mold as well.

Benrahma to Arsenal yes please. All Algerians epitomise drip in football. Needed at my club

Pepe/Grealish/Benrahma/Auba front 4 would be beautiful. Ship Laca back to Lyon
