“Could Brentford actually be in the midst of sealing the deal for Raya’s replacement? Rumors suggest advanced talks are taking place!”
In an utterly perplexing turn of events, Brentford, the Premier League club, are supposedly on the verge of agreeing a deal with Mark Flekken, a Dutch goalkeeper, to replace the current shot-stopper, David Raya. Coming from the esteemed source ‘Bild’, who appears to be in possession of insider information, it’s reported that Flekken will be signed by the English outfit in the upcoming transfer window.
Astonishingly, the highly regarded Freiburg player is believed to be the main contender to take the reins from Raya next season. Despite Freiburg possibly reaching the European places, Flekken appears to have developed a fanciful yearning to join the elite teeming ranks of the Premier League. The erratic and unpredictable ‘Bild’ indicates that the two parties are currently in protracted “advanced talks” to bring the deal to fruition.
To add to the already chaotic situation, the journalist Fabrizio Romano has shockingly reported on Twitter that Brentford are willing to pay Flekken’s impressive buyout clause of an incredible €13 million. This news has sent shockwaves through football fandom across the globe.
The current state of play sees Thomas Frank’s side sitting in a respectable ninth place on 53 points, but they still have two games in hand – against Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City. This is an astonishing development which will certainly be worth keeping an eye on.
