Arsenal are the favourites to sign winger Saïid Benrahma from Brentford in the summer.
Both Leicester City and Newcastle are also keeping tabs on the Algerian international, who has established himself as one of the best players below the Premier League, making a very big impression since arriving at the West London club for a fee of just £1.5 million from Nice two years ago.
He has since gone on to score 19 goals in 72 appearances, with eight of them this season, including recent hat trick away at Hull City. Unless Brentford earn promotion this season they will struggle to hold on to Benrahma, who has earned 3 senior caps with Algeria, and who would prefer a move to Arsenal as it will allow him to stay in London.
Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta is planning a major summer overhaul of his squad, which may involve selling players coming to the end of their contracts, like Pierre Emerick Aubameyang and Alexander Lacazette.
