Chelsea are reportedly interested in signing Brentford winger Said Benrahma, with reports even claiming Chelsea have made contact with the representatives of the Algerian.

Premier League rivals Arsenal are also interested in signing the Brentford winger.

Benrahma has admitted he is flattered by links to Chelsea and Arsenal – but insists he is focussed on the task at hand in trying to help his current side into the top flight.

“I was really flattered [to see myself linked with those clubs],” Benrahma said.

“But, at the same time, I am so focused about getting out of the Championship with Brentford that I do not pay too much attention. But it gives me confidence.”

The 24 year old winger has been one of the standout players in the Championship this year scoring 17 goals and registering eight assists.
