Brentford boss Thomas Frank has admitted that Chelsea linked Said Benrahma could still leave the club this month.
The brilliant Algerian forward Benrahma has been on the radar of a number of Premier League clubs after scoring 17 times in the Championship last season, and His two goals in Brentford’s 3-0 Carabao Cup win over Fulham underlined his ability.
And after Benrhama’s impressive performance against Fulham before the International break, Frank conceded a transfer could be on the cards, despite the fact that the summer transfer window has been closed for a few days.
Due to the impacts of the COVID-19 lockdown, the summer market has been reshaped to help aid clubs, with a ten-week window opened on July 27 and ran until Monday, October 5, closing at 11pm.
However, Premier League clubs can no longer do business with teams in Europe and around the world but they can look to keep spending, This is because the top-flight and EFL have agreed on a second, domestic-only window until October 16th
“Am I confident he will stay? I’m confident that I would love him to stay, and I would love to have him,” said Frank on the SUN website. “But I don’t know. Honestly, if the price is right we are open to selling, but if not we will be happy for him to stay.
“Either we are going to get a top price or we are going to keep one of the best players in the Championship. Has he added a few million to his price? 100 per cent!”
Benrahma is a very good player, but we no longer need the man
