20 million pound Neal Maupay has been the centre of attention in recent weeks and it loos like this will be the case until he leaves or August 8th, whichever comes first.
The Frenchman has scored 37 goals in 85 games with the Bees, 25 of which came in the Championship last season. Maupay is being closely followed by a contingency of Premier League clubs and was left out of the friendly in Austria to return to France.
There have been rumours of the striker heading to Sheffield United, Aston Villa and now Brighton have joined the race for his signature. Maupay has previously said to fans that he is staying and apparently seen at Gatwick Airport saying he is leaving.
It would seem sensible for Neal to stay at Griffin Park and see where we are come January and with the money coming in from the possible Tarkowski transfer we don’t need to “balance the books” shall we say.
It seems that only he knows where he will be next season and possibly Matthew Benham, feel free to let us know! Although we know Maupay will be missed by all at Brentford, we know, with the window we’ve had, Mr Benham is going for it and will surely have a replacement lined up.
I think I speak for all Brentford fans when I say, Neal Maupay we want you to stay.
