Said Benrahama is more than capable of playing Premiership football according to Brentford teammate Rico Henry.

The Algerian attacker put in a dazzling display in the Bees’ 2-1 win over Cardiff City at Griffin Park on Wednesday which would’ve enhanced his reputations as one of the league’s best and increased the number of suitors from the top flight.

Last season the 24-year-old topped the Championship assists chart with 14, and with five so far this season, including a sublime through ball for Bryan Mbeumo’s opener against Cardiff, he shows no signs of slowing down.

One man who knows what the former Nice man is capable of is Henry, the left back who sees first hand what the winger is capable of down the flank.

“We know he can play in the top division,” he said.

“He showed that last season with the amount of assists he had.

“We give the ball to Said and he does what he does.

“He’ll always look to take on the defenders.

“Sometimes he’s not too good at tracking back but we’ve got a good relationship that works for both of us.”

Benrahma’s performances have already seen Aston Villa, managed by former Bees boss Dean Smith, register an interest in taking him to Villa Park in a deal reported to be around £20million.

Talk of potential exits don’t affect the squad says Henry, who himself was touted to follow Smith to the midlands outfit last season before injury struck.

“No one takes any notice of what teams are looking at us, we concentrate on what we do, our next game, and that’s Fulham.”

Having one seven of their last ten games the Bees go into the fixture knowing a win would put them into the play-off spots at their West London rivals’ expense.
