Premier League heavyweight Arsenal are said to miss out on attacking target Said Benrahma as the Brentford player is closing in on a move to another team in the top tier of English football.

The Gunners are one of the clubs who have made an enquiry about the Algerian international at London club Brentford but they will miss out on him to West Ham United according to experienced journalist David Ornstein.

David Ornstein writes for The Atheltic and he has revealed that West Ham United and Brentford have agreed a £30m transfer for Algerian international Said Benrahma.

The £30m agreed for Benrahma includes add-ons.

Apart from Arsenal and West Ham United, clubs like Crystal Palace, Manchester United and many more also made enquiry for the player who almost led Brentford into the Premier League at the end of last season.

Benrahma and Brentford lost 2-1 to Fulham in the final of the Championship playoffs as the Cottagers secured the last spot in this season’s Premier League.

West Ham United fans complained about the lack of transfers at the club this summer but the latest transfer news would be a welcome development for them.

Premier League transfer window ended on Monday, October 5 but Premier League teams can still sign players from the lower leagues of English football until October 16.
