The attacking department of the Arsenal squad needs quality additions this summer.
The reports in England suggested that Arsenal have joined the hunt for Brentford winger Said Benrahma.
The Algeria international joined Brentford from Nice for a fee in the region of 1.7 million euros in July 2018. His contract expires in the summer of 2022.
In 72 appearances for Brentford, Benrahma has managed to score 19 goals, and create 23 goals for his teammates.
His impressive performances this season have apparently caught the eye of some of Europe’s big clubs.
Mikel Arteta has always been a manager who keeps his eyes on the most talented young players across the globe. He is a long term admirer of Benrahma and believes he can get the most out of the Algeria international.
Arsenal are desperate to make an impact in the summer transfer window.
Said Benrahma has the talent to play many roles in attack.
According to the report, “Arsenal are the latest team to show an interest in Brentford winger Said Benrahma. The attacker has been impressive in the Championship this season. The 24-year-old is wanted by Leicester City. Now The Telegraph reports that Arsenal have entered the race. Benrahma is said to be available for roughly £15 million in the summer. It is likely that Brentford would sell, unless they manage to gain promotion to the Premier League through the playoffs.”

The 24-year-old would be a very good addition for Arsenal and they can afford him as well.
This transfer could turn out to be a bargain as the market for wingers is inflated at the moment.
It will be interesting to see what happens when Arsenal come calling for Benrahma this summer.
