ExWHUemployee has claimed that West Ham could move for Brentford attacker Said Benrahma if their attempts to sign Queens Park Rangers ace Eberechi Eze fail.
It has been widely reported that Hammers boss David Moyes will have little or no money at all to spend this summer.
So the Scot clearly must sell before he can buy. And that means that the 57-year-old must act fast.
West Ham have been chasing Eze since January (The Sun). And the 22-year-old is clearly one of Moyes’s top targets.
But if the Hammers fail to get a deal done for the QPR starlet, ExWHUemployee suggested that Moyes will move for Brentford ace Said Benrahma instead, when speaking on the West Ham Way podcast (Wednesday July 29th):
“If we don’t get Eze we are interested in Benrahma of Brentford.”
The 24-year-old Algerian has been one of the standout player sin the Championship this season.
Benrahma has racked up an incredible 17 goals and nine assists in 45 league games for the Bees (Who Scored).
In those outings, he has averaged 3.9 shots, 2.2 key passes and three dribbles per game (Who Scored).
The pacy winger would be an absolutely sensational signing for the Hammers. The problem, however, is that Brentford are said to be demanding around £25 million for the Algerian ace (The Express).
And if the Bees gain promotion to the Premier League, it will be extremely hard for West Ham to prise Benrahma away from Griffin Park.
Let’s just hope that Moyes manages to move on some of the deadwood. And then he might be in a position to compete for the likes of Benrahma and Eze this summer.
