Fulham move to trump Crystal Palace for Brentford attacker Said Benrahma

Fulham have moved to trump Crystal Palace for Brentford attacker Said Benrahma.

The Eagles are advanced in their move for the Algeria international, but are yet to close a deal.

But west London rivals Fulham have now entered the race to land Benrahma - who was widely recognised as the best attacking player in the Championship last season, says the Daily Mail.

Representatives from the Craven Cottage club have been in touch with the player's advisors for an update on the status of Benrahma's protracted move to Palace, with a view to launching their own swoop.

Brentford value Benrahma close to £20million - a fee a number of clubs have been reluctant to meet.
