L’equipe are reporting that Algerian winger Said Benrahma wants to secure a move to newly-promoted Aston Villa. Villa have reportedly bid €16m for the Brentford forward.

The 23-year-old is coming off of the back of an excellent season for the Bees, that saw him score 10 goals and register 14 assists in 38 appearances. The former Nice winger missed the African Cup of Nations this summer through injury after limping off against Reading last season.

Benrahma would become the second player Dean Smith has signed from his old club Brentford, with Villa signing Ezri Konsa earlier in the summer. The Birmingham club have been linked with a move for Brentford’s 23-year-old hitman Neal Maupay in this manic window that has seen Villa spend over £100m.

While many Villa fans are happy that the club are preparing well for their maiden season back in the Premier League, some fans are worried that the club are not being smart with their money. One Villa fan thinks it will be hard to keep everyone happy if Benrahma signs, as there will be four wingers in Smith’s squad.

Here is the best of the reaction.
