Barely weeks after Kick442.com reported that Premier League outfit Chelsea FC were keen on the acquisition 24-year-old Algerian forward Saïd Benrahma from Championship side Brentford, the Blues have now taken their quest to sign the player further.
RMC is reporting that the Frank Lampard has personally reached out to the player and the Chelsea recruitment team has been talking to the player’s entourage since late last week.
Chelsea are looking for a potential replacement for Willian and Pedro who will be out of contract at the end of the season.
The Blues have set their sights on the forward nicknamed the Algerian Messi owing to his trickery, skills, and probably his attachment to the number 10 jersey like Barcelona’s Messi.
The player is valued at £31million which might pose a little problem for a potential move for him away from Griffin Park to Stamford Bridge.
The 24-year-old former Nice player has featured in 34 of Brentford’s 37 league games this season with 10 goals to his name.
The native of Aïn Témouchant, Algeria, has made 72 league appearances for Brentford since joining them in 2018, scoring 20 goals. He has also won 3 caps with the Desert Foxes of Algeria.
