Brentford target Kelleher, Lafont and Flekken as Raya replacement options

Brentford are targeting Alban Lafont, Mark Flekken and Caoimhin Kelleher as they plan for life after current No 1 goalkeeper David Raya.

The Spain international has been linked with a number of big clubs, including Tottenham, Chelsea and Manchester United, and the Bees are laying the groundwork on several replacements as the season draws to a close

They believe Raya is worth £40m and have proven in the past that they will not sell players for less than their valuations.

Spurs have found this out before when they attempted to negotiate for Ollie Watkins in 2020, only to see him join Aston Villa for £33m.

Raya has a year left on his Brentford contract and twice rejected offers of new deals in the last 18 months, revealing publicly earlier this season that "he would like to see what happens in the summer".

Brentford are therefore ploughing ahead with plans to sign a new goalkeeper to compete with Thomas Strakosha, whom they signed last summer, and will do so regardless of Raya's future.
