Tottenham Hotspur have entered the race to sign Said Benrahma from Brentford this summer, reports say.
The Bees are set to break up their renowned ‘BMW‘ front three having been beaten by Fulham in the Championship play-off final on Tuesday.
However, they agonisingly fell short against Fulham, who beat them 2-1 at Wembley in added extra time.
Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho wants to sign the left-winger, amid interest from Premier League rivals Arsenal, Aston Villa, Chelsea, Leeds United and West Ham.
Spurs may have the advantage already, as Arsenal are trying to sign Blues winger Willian, while the Blues have bought Hakim Ziyech from Ajax as well.
Benrahma was one of the best players in Thomas Frank’s side last term, having scored 17 goals and supplied 9 assists in the Championship (via WhoScored).
He fully deserves the chance to step-up to another level of competition, as he has shown he has so many different elements to his playing style.
The Algerian is more than capable of playing for a top-six side, he just needs the opportunity to prove himself. Spurs have shown they can give players from lower leagues a platform to excel, as Daniel Levy’s decision to sign Dele Alli has turned out to be a masterstroke.
Tottenham fans, do you think Daniel Levy should sign Said Benrahma? Let us know down below!
