Benrahma has played a vital role in the Brentford quest to secure promotion to the Premier League scoring seventeen goals and providing nine assists in 41 games this campaign.
Chelsea boss Frank Lampard had already signed a midfielder and an attacker to bolster the squad but there are strong feelings that the English coach may add another winger and a defender before the end of the transfer window. Benrahma who has been very impressive this season is already on Frank Lampard's shopping list.
The 24-year-old Algerian is a tricky winger who has been dubbed 'Algerian Messi' would be a perfect replacement for Pedro or the Brazilian star William who are both expected to leave the Stanford Bridge at the expiration of their contracts in the coming days.
Based on the reports from RMC Sports, the West London giants Chelsea are already in talks Benrahma's agent to detail a possible move to Stanford Bridge this summer but the report also claimed that the Blues has shown interest but yet to make a formal bid to sign the player.
Meanwhile, the report also suggests that Arsenal has moved in to sign the talented winger and negotiations has started in a view to quickly finish the deal against next season.
Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta already knows that his transfer budget could be limited this summer but after sending out his scouts to watch the Algerian on several occasions the report came back good and he's ready to make a formal bid to sign the player.
Benrahma is a very talented footballer and he is capable of playing in the Premier League team, but must be willing to pay the right amount needed to sign if they really mean business. He could also be a risk signing for the North London club.
Should Arsenal go for the Algerian Messi?
