ASTON VILLA are reportedly continuing their Championship raid with a bid for Brentford star Said Benrahma.

The newly-promoted team have already snapped up Birmingham City forward Jota for £4million and are returning to the second-tier for another deal.

According to Le10 Sport, an offer worth £8.9million has been lodged to commence the bidding on Benrahma.

Brentford are braced for a number of clubs showing an interest in the 23-year-old Algerian.

In his first year at Griffin Park, Benrahma smashed 11 goals and 17 assists.

And after costing Brentford just over £2.5m last summer, they may be tempted to cash in on the player.

However reports in the spring suggested a whopping £30m asking price for the transfer window ahead.

There were even suggestions that Chelsea and Arsenal were tracking the winger.

Back in February, Benrahma did admit to wanting a shot at the Premier League sooner or later.

He said: “For me personally, I would love to play in the Premier League one day.


“And I don’t see any reason why that can’t be with Brentford.

“Any player wants to test themselves at the highest level.”

Villa have also been linked to Bees striker Neal Maupay as well as Championship pair Neil Etheridge of Cardiff City and Blackburn Rovers star Bradley Dack.
