According to a report from the Daily Star, West Ham boss David Moyes could be eyeing a double deal for Bournemouth’s Josh King and Brentford’s Said Benrahma before next week’s transfer deadline.

We still have eight days left before the window shuts. And it will be vital for the Hammers boss to make up for the lack of incomings on Monday.

In truth, Moyes should be prioritising move for a central defender and central midfielder. We are incredibly weak in both of those departments.

But the Daily Star reckons West Ham are eyeing moves for Josh King and Said Benrahma.

Both players would be excellent signings. But let’s be honest here, we will be extremely lucky to end up with just one of them.

Hammers boss David Moyes has around £30 million to spend before the transfer window shuts according to the Athletic’s David Ornstein. So signing both King and Benrahma is quite simply an unrealistic prospect.

This report just makes no sense. There is quite simply no way that we could afford to sign both the Bournemouth and Brentford players.

If Moyes manages to bring either King or Benrahma to the London Stadium as well as a centre-back and a central midfielder, the West Ham fans will surely be more than happy, after having experienced such disappointment on Monday.

Only time will tell, however, as to whether David Sullivan is prepared to back Moyes. Or will he once again throw the Scot under the bus? We shall soon find out.
