Chelsea, though, have yet to submit an official bid for the attacking player as they continue to recruit new talent ahead of the 2020/21 season.
The West London-based outfit have already secured the services of Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner with the board also looking at exciting left-back Ben Chilwell.
Not to mention Bayer Leverkusen starlet Kai Havertz, though it appears the club are now turning their attention to Benrahma who's also attracting interest from Leicester City and Arsenal.

Speaking about his future in April, the Algerian ace said: "I can not complain. I am now focused on my club in Brentford after it makes me happy that upscale Premier League clubs are behind me.
"'I have a contract with Brentford and I have to honour them properly."
Benrahma still has two seasons left to run on his current contract as his future remains the subject of intense transfer speculation ahead of the Championship restart on Saturday.
