“Big Signature” – Dean Smith invited to complete exciting transfer from Aston Villa


Darren Bent urged Aston Villa to finally sign Said Benrahma of Brentford this summer.

Benrahma was a prime target for Dean Smith last summer, but Villa refused to meet the attacker’s asking price of 20 million pounds sterling per bee.

Although he missed the opening weeks of the season due to an injury, Benrahma returned to coach Brentford in the promotion with 10 goals and seven assists in 30 Championship starts.

It is only a matter of time before the Algerian climbs to the top and Villa is in a good position to land him if they avoid relegation.

And the former Villa Bent striker supports Smith’s reunion with Benrahma.

He told Football Insider, “He’s a very good player, he showed us all how good he is and I think it would be a great signing.

“It sort of reminds me of (Anwar) El Ghazi and Trezeguet, those guys over there, and for me, I think it would be a great, great signature, a very good signature.

“He’s exciting, he’s been brilliant for Brentford this season. Him, Ollie Watkins and (Bryan) Mbeueno were all very, very good.

“For Aston Villa, it depends. If they go down, they still have a lot of weight in the championship, even if they go down, it’s still a big, massive club. I think it would be a great signature whatever division they are in. “
