Newly-promoted Fulham are allegedly ready to launch a £15 million bid for West Ham United attacker Said Benrahma.
That’s according to high-level Hammers insiders Claret and Hugh who claim that Benrahma could be on his way out of the London Stadium this summer.

West Ham manager David Moyes is reportedly not satisfied with the performances of the 26-year-old and expected more of an impact from him last season (Claret and Hugh).
And a bid for West Ham ace Benrahma could well be incoming this summer…
Benrahma actually joined the Hammers originally on loan in October 2020 but his move was made permanent just three months later in order to facilitate the loan signing of Jesse Lingard.
Benrahma struggled to make much of an impact during his first season at the London Stadium. Last term though, the 17-capped Algeria international showed what he is all about.
Despite not being a regular figure in the starting XI, Benny proved that he is one of the Hammers’ most potent attacking forces.
For some reason though, David Moyes just doesn’t fancy him…
Fulham ready to make bid for West Ham ace Benrahma
Claret and Hugh reckon that Fulham boss Marco Silva is keeping an eye on Benrahma’s situation at the London Stadium and could launch a £15 million bid for the Algerian ace.
We firmly believe that selling the former Brentford man this summer would be a huge mistake from Moyes.
It just doesn’t make any sense to us whatsoever.
David Moyes is short of numbers as it is and desperately needs to bolster his ranks at the London Stadium, not weaken them.
Benrahma bagged 11 goals and six assists in 48 games for the Hammers last season (Transfermarkt). Only Michail Antonio and Jarrod Bowen racked up more goals and assists and Benrahma played more than 1,000 minutes less than both of those players.
Benrahma is one of the best ball carriers that we have at West Ham, alongside Declan Rice.
He has unfortunately been somewhat of a pariah figure at the London Stadium though, and is often the scapegoat following defeats.
Moyes clearly doesn’t rate Benrahma for whatever reason. So a move away would probably be the best thing for his career.
And it will be interesting to see what happens if Fulham do indeed make a bid for West Ham star Benrahma this summer.
