Chelsea and Leeds chasing Brentford attacker Said Benrahma

Chelsea and Leeds United are chasing Brentford attacker Said Benrahma.

The Daily Express says Premier League new boys Leeds are reportedly planning to go head-to-head with their old rivals for the Algeria international.

Benrahma, 24, has won plaudits for his outstanding performances for the London side in the Championship.

The Bees player, who's valued around the £25million price mark, has been on target 17 times and provided four assists so far this term.

Benrahma's knack for playing on the left and right wings reportedly attracted the attention of Frank Lampard's club this season.

And the player's versatility has also piqued the interest of Leeds manager Bielsa, who had a public fallout with Lampard over a spygate row during his tenure as Derby coach.
