Maupay has been withdrawn from Brentford’s pre-season squad and is not playing for the Bees against Dynamo Kiev in Austria today.
It has been reported by West London Sport that the 22-year-old forward has been granted time off by the Bees and will go back to his home country of France until early next week and will report back for training on Tuesday.
West London Sport has reported that West Ham, Villa and Brighton and Hove Albion all have made enquiries, while The Express & Star has claimed that West Brom want the youngster, who earns £8000 per week as salary.
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.
