EPL: Arsenal linked with Brentford duo

Timothy Aiyeku



Said Benrahma

The English Premier League club Arsenal are still very active in the summer transfer window as they are being linked with a number of players to fill the needed positions.

It is reported that the Gunners are considering the signature of Brentford duo, Said Benrahma and David Paya as the club will not be able to keep most of their star players after missing out on the EPL promotion.

90Min reports that the North London club now considers the signature of the duo and will make a move as soon as the decision is made by the board in the coming weeks.

The report adds that Brentford have valued Said Benrahma at £25 million and the North London club are willing to pay after watching him score 17 goals and nine assists.

Arsenal are expected to face competition from Chelsea, Aston Villa and Leeds as the Premier League trio are also very interested in the signature of the 25-year-old.

The Gunners are also reported to be preparing a £10 million bid for David Raya as he is regarded as a possible replacement for Emi Martinez if he leaves the club as speculated.

However, none of the suitors, including the North London outfit is yet to make an official bid for the players but it is expected that Brentford will receive bids in the coming weeks.
