According to a report from the Daily Mail, West Ham will make a move to sign Bournemouth striker Josh King once they have secured the signature of Said Benrahma.

Hammers fans had to endure a disappointing transfer window before the deadline arrived on Monday October 5th.

The extended window – whereby Premier League clubs can buy players from the EFL, is still open until 5pm tomorrow, however.

And it seems as though West Ham are desperately trying to bolster their attack before five o’clock tomorrow evening.

David Moyes has already brought Vladimir Coufal and Craig Dawson to the London Stadium.

And we are now closing in on the £30 million signing of Said Benrahma from Brentford (Daily Mail).


The Algerian is imminently set to undertake his medical ahead of a move to east London.

And when we do end up signing Benrahma, the Daily Mail claims that Moyes will swoop in for Bournemouth forward Josh King.

The Cherries value King at around £16 million (Daily Mail). That seems like an awful lot of money for a 28-year-old with just nine months remaining on his current contract.

The Norway international is proven in the Premier League, however.

He is a really hard working forward and can play anywhere along the front-line. So perhaps £16 million wouldn’t actually be bad value for King after all.

And if West Ham signing both Benrahma and Josh King, we will be an incredibly potent attacking force this season.
