ExWHUemployee claims prominent agent could help West Ham sign Said Benrahma

ExWHUemployee has suggested that Brentford ace Said Benrahma’s agent Will Salthouse could help push the Algerian towards a move to West Ham this summer.

Salthouse – the chief executive of Unique Sports Management, is one of the most prominent agents in England. He represents Hammers stars Michail Antonio, Aaron Cresswell, Ryan Fredericks and Darren Randolph as well as Manchester United ace Aaron Wan Bissaka, Tottenham starlet Ryan Sessegnon and Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson.

And Brentford winger Said Benrahma is also in his stable.

ExWHUemployee claimed on the West Ham Way podcast (Thursday, July 23rd) that West Ham boss David Moyes is keen to sign Benrahma this summer.

And the Hammers insider suggested last night that Will Salthouse could aid Moyes’s attempts to bring the Brentford star to West Ham:

Stats

The 24-year-old has been in quite simply sensational form this season for the Bees. He has racked up 17 goals and nine assists in 43 Championship games (Transfermarkt).

The Algerian was arguably the Championship’s standout player this season. And he is clearly ready to take the jump up to the next level.

Brentford will have to lower their demands for Benrahma, however, if David Moyes is to have any chance whatsoever of bring the winger to the London Stadium.

The Bees value Benrahma at around £36 million (La Gazette du Fennec). And with being widely reported that Moyes has limited funds to play with this season, a move to West Ham seems unlikely for the 24-year-old.

If the Hammers sell some of their more valuable assets like Felipe Anderson, however, they could then be in a position to bring the pacy Algerian to east London.
