Both Arsenal and Chelsea are reportedly interested in the signature of Brentford star, Said Benrahma ahead of the summer transfer window.

Said Benrahma has enjoyed an impressive season, helping his team to the Championship playoff and giving them a big hope to return to the Premier League. He has been tipped to be of a good quality that can play in any of the big sides in England.

The Gunners and the Blues are, therefore, reported to be leading in the chase of the former Nice player.

However, Said Benrahma has admitted to being flattered by the interests coming from Premier League clubs as well as the prospect of playing in the topflight again.

He, therefore, noted that he is being focused on the target of getting Brentford out of the Championship and would not be carried away with the interests until that has been achieved.

According to Said Benrahma, playing in the Premier League has been a long-term target and he is hopeful the opportunity presents itself very soon, adding that it would be a great one for Brentford to come to the Premier League this season.

Meanwhile, Arsenal and Chelsea will have to submit bids for the player with the hope that his fee will not be too high to bear.
