Blues started an official chase for Brentford FC winger, said Benrahma.
Frank Lampard and Marina Granovskaia are looking for an attacking option in the wing for Chelsea. Stamford Bridge is losing veterans from the frontline without any inflow of money this summer. And they need to expand the available options with more promising talents in the coming transfer window.
The second division star Said Benrahma is the new invention of Frank Lampard for the respective position. The current first choice in the attacking wide Willian needs a replacement and Benrahma seems to be the best one available in England. He has got an attractive stat this season and the 24-year-old is looking for upgradation to the first division with current potential.
Meanwhile, Dortmund ace Jadon Sancho is also listed out by Lampard for the wing option. But the insane price tag reduces the chance of the deal in Stamford Bridge. Benrahma is cheaper for the available budget of Chelsea and the player will ensure the development of attack from the sidelines.
The Armory of Frank
The departure of Wilian and Pedro leaves a gap in the attacking front in terms of experience. The young talents Calum Hudson-Odoi and Christian Pulisic will take the role in the side of the frontline with Tammy Abraham. Also, the Ajax entry to the gang Hakim Ziyech will make the party hard.

Although, Chelsea can’t rely on these stars for the chase of ambitious aims including a fight in England as well as in Europe. Benrahma got the promising stats with some experiences with the playing conditions in England. Since, the departure of Eden Hazard from the West London campaign, Chelsea was short of a two-digit scorer in its attack. Also, the supply from the wings is very less this season.
Also, the rise of Mason Mount has given hope in the wide positions of Frank Lampard’s formation. But the player is more flexible in the center. His season performance was remarkable for a future claim. He is able to find more creative space behind Tammy Abraham and in good sync with midfield ace Jorginho.
Benrahma’s possible Premier League Debut
Summer seems to be unpredictable for Chelsea because the targets are highly priced by the clubs to survive the financial hit of the current market. Barcelona’s Philippe Coutinho is also present in the wishlist of Lampard.
Above all, Chelsea came up with the opening bid for the player as no other clubs noticed the player. Meanwhile, the price range of £30-35 million is negotiable for the Blues. And they can win the deal as per the latest calculations (Transfermarkt). Brentford is aiming a decent deal to make a large figure out of the business. They are aiming a promotion to the premier league with a stunning chase for the top spots.
The exit of some top players like Jorginho is also gossiping in the transfer market. But Chelsea can raise some funds from such exits also. The placement of Ziyech and Pulisic should be done by the end of the season. The performance of the current squad stars in the rest of the season will decide the future of the Algerian ace.
As of now, Chelsea is a good or starting point for Said Benrahma to get into the top-level competition of England. He can build a secure future with Frank Lampard along with a set of promising young talents.
