The 26-year-old is also a reported target of Middlesbrough, who had a £4.5 million bid for the Spaniard rejected recently.
The Spaniard has entered the final year of his contract at Griffin Park, and the Bees apparently value the player at £8 million.
The Cottagers are even ready to pay £30,000 a week to the player, apparently more than what Boro have offered.
Jota returned to Brentford after a year-long absence in January and scored 12 goals and chipped in with five assists in just 21 league outings.
He was linked with a move to Premier League clubs Newcastle and West Ham earlier in the summer, but it seems he’ll continue to ply his trade in the Championships.
Jota is a versatile attacking forward capable of playing anywhere along the front line, but he is most effective when deployed in the number 10 role.
