Brentford winger Said Benrahma emerges as surprise Chelsea target

Brentford winger Said Benrahma is being linked with Chelsea.

La Gazette du Fennec says with veteran duo Willian and Pedro looking set to depart Stamford Bridge as their contracts wind down, Frank Lampard is desperate for reinforcements.

And one of those being monitored is the surprise name of the man dubbed 'the Algerian Messi'.

But the Blues face having to pay £31m to prise Benhrama away from Griffin Park.

Benrahma, 24, has featured in 34 of Brentford's 37 Championship games this season and has struck 10 times, including a hat-trick against Hull.
