Twist

It is clear that speculation on the future of Maupay has affected the youngster, and perhaps Brentford will now think of selling the forward, who scored 25 goals and provided eight assists in 43 Championship appearances for the Bees last season, according to WhoScored.

Brentford are reportedly looking for at least £20m as salary for the young forward, and perhaps they will have to settle for less.
