According to a recent report by the Sunday Times (via The Daily Star), Tottenham Hotspur have joined the hunt to secure the services of Brentford wide player Said Benrahma during the January transfer window. The same source has also claimed that Spurs boss Jose Mourinho is desperate to bolster his options this winter and has set his eyes on the EFL Championship playmaker.
Benrahma’s Impressive Season At Brentford So Far
Since his big move to England from OGC Nice in the summer of 2018, Benrahma has successfully managed to show what he is capable of to the Griffin Park faithful. He has been in sparkling form for the Bees this season after he put in some eye-catching performances in the English second division.
The Algerian wide player has played in 20 matches for Brentford this term, scoring three goals while providing six assists on all fronts. He is averaging 3.5 shots, 2.3 key passes and 3.5 dribbles per game in the Championship (stats via whoscored).
The 24-year-old has also managed to earn three senior caps for the Algerian national team but is yet to open his goal-scoring account for his nation.
What Does The Ex-Ligue 1 Prospect Offer On The Field?
Benrahma is a quick and agile wide player who can complete some lung-bursting dribbles down the right flank. He excels at running with the ball and can cause a lot of problems for the opposition defenders. The Algeria international has also shown this season that he is not shy of playing a killer pass in the final third as evidenced by his tally of six assists for the Bees this season.
Is Benrahma A Gamble Worth Pursuing?
However, the jury is still out on whether the Brentford attacker will be able to prove himself in the Premier League. Making a step up to the English top-flight is never easy for a Championship player, so Spurs will be taking a huge gamble if they decide to sign Benrahma in the future.
Jose Mourinho is a world-class manager who has uncovered hidden gems in the past so maybe, investing on someone like the Algerian might turn out to be a calculated risk as he has the potential to come good at the top level of English football.
