'My god he's a player', 'We forgive you' – Many Leeds fans want one transfer after Thurs display
Said Benrahma has done everything possible to keep himself in the shop window this summer after a phenomenal display against Fulham in the Carabao Cup.
Benrahma scored a worldie as he notched two goals in the 3-0 win over the Premier League side and it certainly got the attention of Leeds United fans, who were reeling after learning that the deal for Bayern Munich midfielder Michael Cuisance had collapsed on Thursday night.
Footage of the goal was posted by Sky Sports on Thursday night if you missed it.
And that is why Premier League clubs are tracking Saïd Benrahma 😲pic.twitter.com/5AXw2WCzzK

Leeds were linked strongly to Benrahma this summer but Athletic journalist Phil Hay claimed that they had cooled on a deal after the attacker posted a video of his luxury holiday.
There was a feeling that he might not fit in with Bielsa and his philosophy to football.
However, plenty of fans are willing to forgive and forget.
It does seem odd that no club has come in for Benrahma yet – he certainly looks ready to jump up to the Premier League.
However, there’s no time imperative at the moment. The transfer window shuts on Monday for international deals.
But, Leeds can still sign players from EFL clubs until October 16 – and that means there’s plenty of time for them to change their mind over the Brentford player.
These Leeds fans hope that’s what happens and would love to see Benrahma make the move to Elland Road…
So bielsa likes versatility… Benrahma can play CM, CAM and as a winger… Am I missing something here? #lufc
