Alleged £16m Moyes target pictured in West Ham shirt on international duty with Said Benrahma

Alleged West Ham target Adam Ounas has been pictured in a West Ham shirt whilst away on international duty with Algeria.

Said Benrahma posted the below photo to his official Instagram account. We can only presume that the 25-year-old gifted the jersey to his fellow countryman:

West Ham were linked with a move to sign Napoli ace Ounas in the summer.

In fact, Calcio Mercato claims that Hammers boss David Moyes was offered the chance to bring the 23-year-old to the London Stadium for around £16 million.

The move eventually failed to materialise, however. Ounas joined Cagliari on a season-long loan in October.

The nine-capped Algeria international winger has racked up eight goals and five assists in 50 games since the start of the 2018/19 campaign (Transfermarkt).

One to keep an eye on but nothing more

The 23-year-old is far from a standout player, but he is a very solid one nevertheless.

The last thing West Ham need is another winger, however. David Moyes should be prioritising the additions of a centre-back, a central midfielder and a centre-forward over the next couple of transfer windows.

We have already brought Benrahma to the London Stadium. The next transfers we make must be in other areas of the pitch.

The 25-year-old Hammer has obviously been speaking very highly of West Ham as a football club. It’s great to have our international players laying the ground work whilst away on international duty.

But sorry Said. We just don’t need Ounas right now.
