He moved from Blackburn in 2019 and is now edging closer to making another huge step in his career. As one of just three goalkeepers to play every minute of every game he managed to keep 12 clean sheets in 38 outings. Only four keepers could better that.

Raya also impressed during Brentford’s win over Spurs at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium earlier this season, making two immense saves to earn a 3-1 victory for Thomas Frank’s side/
It is also public that he has been angling for a move away and another move up the footballing ladder. Here, football.london has the latest on his future.

Raya conceded more goas from outside the box than any other ‘keeper last season but did lead the way for saves, making 254 from 197 on target. It left him with the highest save percentage and the most clean sheets for any team with less than 19 wins.
Brentford coach Thomas Frank has been open about selling Raya. “I think we only have one player for sale. That’s the one that’s been talked about a lot: David. He costs £40million, I think I said,” he admitted in May.

“We are a selling club — I don’t think that’s a secret. But they need to be crazy high amounts for the players if we want to have anyone to leave. I’m pretty sure that everyone, including myself, is very happy here at Brentford.”
