Borussia Dortmund are monitoring the progress of Brentford midfielder Said Benrahma ahead of a potential deal.

According to TeamTalk, Dortmund are keeping tabs on Benrahma as they weigh up a move to sign the midfield at the end of the season. 

Benrahma plays for Brentford in the Championship, the second tier of English football, and has been in superb form so far this season.

The Algerian international joined Brentford last summer from Ligue 1 side Nice for a fee in the region of £5m, but the English outfit are now said to be demanding £30m for his signature in the summer. 

This would make him the most expensive player to have ever played in the Championship, following on from James Maddison’s £25m move from Norwich to Leicester at the start of the current season.

Benrahma has been involved in 20 goals for Brentford in the Championship this term, with nine goals and 11 assists.
