Spurs are set to enter the race for £16million Said Benrahma with Brentford set to break up their famed BMW strike force.

The Algerian playmaker, Bryan Mbeumo and Ollie Watkins scored 58 goals between them to shoot the Bees to the brink of the Premier League.

Fulham, however, beat them in Tuesday night’s Play-Off Final with Watkins missing out on the Golden Boot.

With Benrahma determined to play in the top flight, it means the Bees will not listen to offers for one of their prize assets.

West Ham are big admirers of the 24-year-old playmaker but need to sell before they can buy as they are among several Premier League clubs currently battling a cash crisis.

The Hammers have also prioritised strengthening their defence, meaning Spurs could steal a march in the race for Benrahma.
