Said Benrahma scored the goal of the night in the Carabao Cup last night and Arsenal fans couldn’t help but wax lyrical regarding the Algerian’s brilliance afterwards.
Benrahma was linked with a move to Arsenal back in August but nothing has come to fruition with the 25-year-old still with the Bees.
The forward can play on either flank and scored two goals last night, with one, in particular, catching the eye.
He produced a stunning dummy nutmeg on Michael Hector before unleashing an unstoppable effort beyond Marek Rodak in the Fulham goal.
Benrahma deserved to be in a promotion-winning team for his performances last season, with Brentford losing in the Play-Off Final.
He fired 17 goals and registered 10 assists as the Bees captured the hearts of neutrals across the country.
He has been linked with a move to several clubs during the transfer window and it’ll be interesting to see where he ends up after the deadline.
It does seem unlikely at this stage that Arsenal will now make a move, with Arteta blessed with plenty of options in attack.
That didn’t stop supporters raving about the man with three caps for his country after his brilliance last night.
Here is a selection of Tweets from Arsenal fans as Benrahma scores a cracker.
I know we don’t need any wingers but I feel like this guy would be a great signing for arsenal
