West Ham United winger Said Benrahma allegedly could be sold in the summer transfer window.
That’s according to a claim from club insiders Claret and Hugh who suggest that Benrahma isn’t a David Moyes type player.
The 26-year-old joined West Ham from Brentford in October 2020.
He ended up joining on a permanent £25 million deal in January 2021, having spent the previous three months at the London Stadium on a £4 million loan deal (Eurosport).
Benrahma struggled to make much of an impact during his first season at the London Stadium though.
The Algeria international did find some form during the first couple of months of this season but then went through a really bad patch.
In fairness to Benny, he has bagged nine goals and six assists in 40 games for West Ham this term (Transfermarkt).
It is clear to see that Moyes doesn’t fancy the former Brentford man though. He is always the first one to get hooked by the Scot. And it appears as though the Algerian’s days at the London Stadium could be numbered…
Benrahma could be sold
Claret and Hugh reckon that the 26-year-old could be set for the chop this summer.
There is a case to be made for Moyes not actually getting the best out of Benrahma due to his harsh treatment of the winger.
The truth of the matter is that the Algeria international quite simply needs to do more though.
Benrahma goes missing far too often during games and with his confidence seemingly shattered at the moment, he has been lacking any kind of intent and willingness to take on opposing defenders.
The former Brentford man is a hugely exciting talent and he can be unplayable when he’s on top form. The trouble is that he lacks any kind of consistency.
It would be great if Moyes could get the best out of Benny. As time goes on though, it seems as though that just won’t happen.
And it would be no surprise to see Benrahma sold in the summer transfer window.
