Brentford goalkeeper David Raya has confirmed he has rejected two contract offers from the west London club.

The Blues were the busiest sides in the January window, having splashed the cash to sign David Datro Fofana, Andrey Santos, Benoit Badiashile, Joao Felix and Mykhaylo Mudryk as Graham Potter looked to strengthen his squad for the second phase of the season.

But the summer transfer window will give the Blues an opportunity to add a few more players to the side – and Raya is a man that the club reportedly want.

The 27-year-old Spain international has made a total of 143 appearances since he arrived at Brentford in 2019 from Blackburn and helped Thomas Frank’s side clinch promotion to the top-flight after winning the 2021 Championship play-offs.

Kepa has been decent since coming back into the side this season – but still looks like a man that can make a mistake or two – while Edouard Mendy has been out for some time and is considering his future at the club.

Chelsea ‘made contact’ with the player in the January window but failed to get a transfer deal done. It is believed that Brentford would be willing to sell Raya in the summer if they cannot convince him to sign a new deal in order to maximize the best possible price for him

Now – the Spaniard has admitted that he has already rejected two contract offers from Brentford – Raya told The Athletic

“I turned down two contracts, one last year and one this January,” They weren’t the offers we were looking for. I can only say that.

“I want to focus on playing games and not think too much about my future.”I have a contracthere, so I’m willing to finish that, but you never know what’s going to happen in the summer.

“Maybe the club wants to sell, maybe not. Maybe I want to stay. I want to focus on football and see what happens.

“The club will decide the price and if a club wants to pay money, that will be it. I’m not worried about that. I’m not in charge of that.

“I want to play in Europe and I want to fight to win a title.

“I want to fight to win a European title. I trust myself to be able to play in those types of games.”
