‘Bielsa could make him a serious player’: Some Leeds fans want 17-goal attacker at Elland Road

A number of Leeds United fans have urged the Whites camp to bring Said Benrahma to Elland Road after his team fell short in the Championship playoff final.

The 24-year-old attacker has been a revelation for Brentford since signing from Nice in 2018 for a reported £1.5million fee.

To date, Benrahma has claimed 28 goals and 27 assists from 91 competitive Bees appearances, including 17 goals and 10 assists in the Championship this season.

The Algeria international’s exploits this season kept Brentford challenging for automatic promotion alongside Leeds United and West Bromwich Albion.

Sadly for the Bees, they fell short in their pursuit of the top two and, after making it to the playoff final, fell to a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Fulham at Wembley.

It remains to be seen whether Benrahma will want to take part in another season in the second tier after showing he’s certainly got what it takes to shine in the top flight.

With Leeds now back in the Premier League after 16 years out, they are being linked with a number of high-calibre players, with Benrahma reportedly on their list too (The Sun).

Here is what some Whites fans have been saying on social media in wake of the playoff final:
