The 25-year-old arrived at the London Stadium on loan from Brentford last summer.

He ended up joining on a permanent £25 million deal in January, having spent the previous three months at the London Stadium on a £4 million loan deal (Eurosport).

Despite the odd glimpses of magic last season, Benrahma disappointed on the whole.

What made it incredibly frustrating was the fact that we all know just how talented he is.

The 25-year-old ended the season in fine form, however. He began to show more consistency and really put in a shift defensively – a prerequisite for anyone who plays under David Moyes.

Benrahma is the kind of player who always wants the ball.

He will have a key role to play for the Hammers this season, with it looking ever more likely that Jesse Lingard will not return to the London Stadium.

Benny racked up one goal and seven assists in 33 appearances for West Ham last season (Transfermarkt).

He is the kind of player who should be racking up at least five goals and 10 assists.

We’re backing him to do just that next season. This is Benrahma’s time to shine.
