According to a report from the Mirror, Said Benrahma is set for a meeting with Brentford Director of Football Phil Giles when he returns to London today and will try and force through a move to West Ham.

Sky Sports reported three days ago that the Hammers had agreed a deal to sign the 25-year-old winger believed to be worth around £30 million in total.
But things took a worrying turn on Monday, with the Mirror claiming that the east London outfit’s proposed deal to sign the Algeria international was on the verge of collapsing.
This is clearly one that will go down to the wire, however.
The Mirror reckons it could all hinge on a meeting today between Benrahma and Brentford DOF Phil Giles.
The 25-year-old winger will allegedly try and force through a move to West Ham.
The Algeria international is the kind of maverick who could really thrive at the London Stadium. Perhaps he could emulate the likes of Paolo Di Canio and Dimitri Payet. Who knows.
Benrahma is incredibly skilful and has the ability to win a game on his own. He clearly has exceptional talent.
Whether he manages to force through a move to West Ham, however, remains to be seen.
