Hammers boss David Moyes will be keen to bolster his attacking ranks at the London Stadium this summer.

Andriy Yarmolenko, Felipe Anderson, Albian Ajeti and Manuel Lanzini could all be sold at the end of the season (Claret and Hugh).

If West Ham do sell a number of first-team stars, they will obviously have to reinvest the money they receive in some top class talent.

And Foot Mercato claimed earlier this week that the Hammers could move for Brentford star Said Benrahma.

La Gazette du Fennec claims that the Bees will demand somewhere in the region of €40 million (£36 million) for the 24-year-old’s services this summer.

That is obviously a lot of money in the current climate.

 

If West Ham can get that fee down, however, Benrahma would be an excellent signing for them.

Stats

The Algeria international has been absolutely on fire for the Bees this season. He has racked up 10 goals and eight assists in 34 Championship appearances for the west London outfit (Transfermarkt).

In those outings, the Benrahma has averaged 3.7 shots, 2.2 key passes and 3.1 dribbles per game (Who Scored).

The Brentford star seems to be at the ideal stage in his career to make the jump up to the Premier League.

ExWHUemployee has today claimed that the Hammers have very real interest in the Algerian right now:

And that should be enough to get West Ham fans very excited indeed.
