West Ham handed boost with Said Benrahma set to try and push through transfer | Football | Sport
West Ham’s hopes of signing Said Benrahma are still alive, with the forward set to try and push through his transfer upon return from international duty. The 25-year-old is currently away with Algeria but his future will be resolved in a matter of days.
West Ham have already reached a club-to-club agreement with Brentford over a £30million deal for Benrahma.
However, the transfer is in danger of breaking down due to a disagreement between the player and the Bees.
Benrahma has been waiting for a move all summer having hit 17 goals in the Championship last season.
Brentford have always been willing to sell, permitting his £25m valuation was met.
Should the issue be resolved, Benrahma looks set to join West Ham before the weekend.
Aston Villa, Fulham and Crystal Palace have all being tracking the mercurial talent, who David Moyes sees as the perfect replacement for Felipe Anderson, who joined Porto on loan last week.
West Ham are expected to move again for Joshua King should they be unable to sign Benrahma.
The Irons had an offer of £13m rejected by Bournemouth last week.
