West Ham are looking to recoup around £12-15 million for Said Benrahma with David Moyes now open to shifting the Algerian winger.
That’s according to high-level club insiders Claret and Hugh who claim that the Hammers will get nowhere neat the £25 million that we paid for him in January 2021.
Benrahma actually joined the Hammers originally on loan in October 2020 but his move was made permanent just three months later in order to facilitate the loan signing of Jesse Lingard.
Benrahma struggled to make much of an impact during his first season at the London Stadium. Last term though, the 17-capped Algeria international showed what he is all about.
Benrahma bagged 11 goals and six assists in 48 games for the Hammers last season (Transfermarkt). Only Michail Antonio and Jarrod Bowen racked up more goals and assists and Benrahma played more than 1,000 minutes less than both of those players.
For some reason though, Moyes just doesn’t fancy him…
West Ham ready to take big hit on Said Benrahma
Claret and Hugh reckon that the Hammers could sell the 26-year-old for as little as £12 million this summer!
That just doesn’t make any sense to us whatsoever.
David Moyes is short of numbers as it is and desperately needs to bolster his ranks at the London Stadium, not weaken them.
Benrahma is one of the best ball carriers that we have at West Ham, alongside Declan Rice.
He has unfortunately been somewhat of a pariah figure at the London Stadium though, and is often the scapegoat following defeats.
Moyes clearly doesn’t rate Benrahma for whatever reason. So a move away would probably be the best thing for his career.
West Ham selling him for just £12 million though really would be ridiculous. We would be better off keeping the Algerian, around unless a huge bid is made for him.
