According to Sky Sports reporter Rob Dorsett, Aston Villa have seen a bid for winger Said Benrahma rejected by Brentford.
Benrahma, 23, had an excellent 2018-19 campaign for Brentford – scoring 11 times and contributing 17 assists in 45 appearances in all competitions.
Villa are currently preparing for life back in the Premier League and it is shaping up to be a very interesting transfer window for Dean Smith’s side.
However, it appears that it will be difficult for the club to secure a deal for Benrahma, who would provide real quality in the final third of the field.
The Villa fans have been on social media reacting to the latest developments.
