Bullish Brentford boss Thomas Frank has revealed that the club will not sell star player Said Benrahma unless their asking price is met by the clubs interested in the Algerian international winger.
Arsenal are one of the numerous Premier League teams gunning for the signature of the player. Chelsea and Aston Villa have also been linked with Said Benrahma.
The Birmingham Mail said that English Championship side Brentford have set an asking price of £30m for the player.

Said Benrahma was one of the best players in the Championship last season but he was not able to lead his team to the Premier League. Benrahma and Brentford were beaten 2-1 by Fulham in the final of the Championship Playoffs.
It has been suggested that the player could make the step up from Championship football to Premier League football but that’s dependent on Brentford.
Thomas Frank was formerly the assistant to Aston Villa manager Dean Smith who’s also interested in signing the winger but the Brentford manager didn’t mince words as he pointed out the major requirement for the club to sell the Algerian via his last interview monitored by the Birmingham Mail.
Aston Villa have already spent a club-record fee of £35m, including add-ons, on the signing of Ollie Watkins from Brentford and Said Benrahma could link up with his Brentford teammate in the coming days.
