Brentford beat Everton 3-2 on Sunday in what was a very exciting match for neutrals, and sees Thomas Frank’s side in 11th place after 37 matches.
It’s an impressive Premier League season for the London club, and they’ll know they’ll need to recruit wisely again this summer to make sure they avoid a relegation battle in the next campaign.
That’s something Brentford have excelled at in recent years, and they’ll again want to make the most of the budget available to their manager.
Monday’s edition of L’Equipe reports the club are ‘particularly’ interested in Hamari Traoré. He’s a 30-year-old right-back and is currently the captain of Rennes, a club he’s been at since joining from Reims in 2017.
Traoré has a contract lasting until June 2023 with the French club, so shouldn’t be too expensive in the next market. No other interested clubs are named by L’Equipe, and this could be a relatively easy deal to conclude.
Benjamin Bourigeaud could also leave Rennes, with the attacking midfielder attracting interest from AS Roma. He’s 28-years-of-age, and also has a year left on his contract, so there’s the chance that when Brentford have been watching Traoré, his teammate may have also appeared on their radar.
