chelsea transfer boost in said benrahma hunt with lampard looking to grab brentford star on cheap after failed promotion scaled

CHELSEA have been handed a summer transfer boost, with Said Benrahma’s Brentford having failed to earn promotion to the Premier League.

The Algerian winger was a catalyst for the West Londoners’ superb season, scoring 17 goals and assisting a further ten for Thomas Frank’s side.

But with the Bees having failed to wrap up automatic promotion during the regular season, followed by last night’s 2-1 defeat to Fulham under the Wembley arch, they have been left vulnerable to losing their star creator.

And according to football.london, Benrahma is still “destined” to play Premier League football next season, albeit not with Brentford.

The 24-year-old has been linked with a host of top-flight clubs – most notably Chelsea and Leeds United.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is set to target a winger this summer, having lost veterans Willian and Pedro on free transfers.

And asked about links to Stamford Bridge last month, Benrahma admitted that he was “flattered” by the talk.

He said: “I was really flattered, but, at the same time, I am so focused about getting out of the Championship with Brentford that I do not pay too much attention.

“Of course, it is giving me confidence, but, at the same time, everyone has their own destiny so I’m just focused on myself and I don’t want to compare myself with other players.

“I always watched the Premier League, especially Arsenal, Manchester United and Chelsea.

“I used to watch when Cristiano [Ronaldo], Thierry Henry and Hatem Ben Arfa at Newcastle were playing.

“Samir Nasri at Arsenal, too. Since I was a kid, I always wanted to play in England.”

Luis Suarez has finally sealed his acrimonious exit from Barcelona after reportedly agreeing a termination of his contract.

Despite long-term interest from Juventus it appears that Atletico Madrid is the next destination for the Uruguayan striker, according to Spanish outlet RAC

And the anticipated departure of Suarez will lead to Atletico shifting on former Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata, who will now return to Juventus on loan.

Suarez had been widely expected to make the move to Juventus after new Barca boss Ronald Koeman made it clear that he did not feature in his plans.

Suarez passed an Italian exam in Perugia last week in order to acquire dual nationality with Juve unable to bring in any more non-EU players in this transfer window following the arrivals of Arthur Melo and Weston McKennie.

The 33-year-old was facing an anxious wait for a passport to be approved ahead of the transfer window closing on October 5, and Andrea Pirlo admitted at the weekend the transfer would be ‘difficult’. 

According to Italian outlet Gazzette dello Sport, the new Juventus boss said: ‘Suarez is difficult because the times to get a passport are long, it is complicated that [our new striker] can be him.’

The breakdown in his move to Juve has allowed Atletico to swoop in, with Diego Simeone looking to pair Suarez with Diego Costa up front.

The move will see Morata head for pastures new once more.

The Spaniard spent two seasons at Juve between 2014 and 2016 and was part of the side that reached the Champions League final in 2015.
