Arsenal looking to move for Brentford's Said Benrahma and David Raya

Premier League giants Arsenal are reportedly lining up a double swoop for Brentford duo Said Benrahma and David Raya. 

Algerian winger Benrahma was one of the standout players in the Championship last season chipping in with 17 goals and ten assists in all competitions. Meanwhile, his teammate Raya played in every league game between the sticks for the Bees as they lost out to Fulham in the play-off final.

The Gunners have already raided Brentford after bringing in coach Andreas Georgson from West London. 

They state that the Bees are willing to listen to offers for the pair after they failed to secure Premier League football. 

It has been reported that Arsenal are ready to match Brentford's £25 million asking price for their star winger Benrahma. But, they face competition from the likes of Chelsea and Leeds United in the race to land the ex-Nice ace. 

Arsenal are said to also be eyeing up a move for Spanish shot-stopper Raya should they part ways with in-demand Emiliano Martinez.

The Argentinian goalkeeper has been linked with a move away from the club now that Bernd Leno is fully recovered from his injury. If Martinez does depart, then Mikel Arteta could opt to make a bid for Raya to become Leno's back-up. 

Though it is understood that following Martinez's starring display in the Community Shield victory against Liverpool, Arsenal are set to keep the former Reading loanee but they understand his situation as he seeks more minutes with the first team.
