Brentford winger Said Benrahma on Arsenal radar?

Arsenal have reportedly “explored” the possibility of signing Brentford winger Said Benrahma this summer, as the Gunners look to rebuild under new boss Mikel Arteta.

The 24-year-old has impressed for the Bees this season, contributing eight goals and five assists in 27 Championship matches.

According to Football.London, Arsenal have joined the Premier League rivals Newcastle United and Leicester City in the race to sign the Algeria international.
