OGC Nice striker Said Benrahma spent last season on loan at Ligue 2 side LB Châteauroux, where he scored nine goals and registered five assists in 31 appearances.
The Algerian international has one year left on his contract with his current employers and his future now lies away from the Ligue 1 outfit, if a report from France Football is to be believed.
On June 27th, we carried a report from RMC Sport, who claimed that scouts from Huddersfield Town and Championship side Brentford have watched Benrahma in action. He is also rumoured to be a target for the La Liga outfit club Leganes.
Benrahma can play on either side of the striker and his ability to finish with both feet has seen him attract interest from English and Spanish clubs. France Football now claims Brentford have now made an offer to Nice to sign the 22-year-old.
The player’s agent Yacine Ayad has confirmed the discussions are well advanced with Brentford, while admitted his client is also studying offers from other clubs.
“Discussions are well advanced with the leaders of the English. Several other offers are also studied. A departure is more than conceivable,” France Football quoted Ayad as saying.
