Said Benrahma

Europa League holders Chelsea will have to contend with the threat of another Premier League side in their bid to sign Brentford winger Said Benrahma.

Chelsea have a keen interest in the Algerian international player but they are not the only Premier League club interested in him.

According to Sky Sports, Aston Villa are also monitoring the winger ahead of the winter transfer market which opens again in the next few weeks.

Said Benrahma is a key performer for Brentford and he has scored three goals and also provided three assists in 12 league starts and four substitute appearances this season as his London club tries to chase Premier League promotion.

In the last campaign, Said Benrahma scored 12 goals and also provided 10 assists in 19 league starts and nine substitute appearances for Brentford.

Chelsea and Aston Villa are expected to battle each other for his signature since the former can now sign players.

The Blues can sign players in the January transfer window after their transfer ban was lifted.

The Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS) delivered the verdict on the two-window transfer ban imposed on Chelsea by FIFA on Friday.

The transfer ban was partially upheld and changed to a window ban which has already been served in the summer.
