Brentford’s excellent form abandoned them in the latter stages of the 2019/20 campaign and they ultimately failed to make it into the Premier League. More disappointment could soon be coming their way however following reports that Aston Villa may be set to sign two of their star players.
Aston Villa boost
The West Midlands outfit are firm favourites to sign attackers Said Benrahma and Ollie Watkins during the summer transfer window. The odds on Watkins signing for Dean Smith’s side have been slashed from 8/1 to just 3/1 over the past few days, making Villa Park his most likely destination ahead of Crystal Palace (4/1) and Leeds United (5/1). Brighton & Hove Albion are fourth favourites to secure the signature of Watkins ahead of Leicester City and Sheffield United at 7/1 and 8/1 respectively.
The odds on Said Benrahma moving to Aston Villa have also been slashed, the Algerian talisman just 15/8 (from 9/1) to be wearing a Villa shirt early next season. Indeed following Brentford’s defeat in the play-off final earlier this week, a reported 57% of all bets have been aimed towards Benrahma making a move to the West Midlands this summer.
Chelsea are second-favourites to secure Benrahma’s signature at odds of 3/1 while newly-promoted Leeds United are a 5/1 shot. West Ham United are 6/1 to get their hands on the Algerian ahead of Tottenham Hotspur (8/1), Leicester City (10/1) and previous frontrunners Arsenal (12/1).
Former Brentford manager Dean Smith will clearly be keen on signing Said Benrahma and Ollie Watkins in the coming weeks, however the Premier League side will undoubtedly be in for some fierce competition in the race to secure their signatures.
