Hammers want t

West Ham have been linked with both QPR star Eze (Evening Standard) and Brentford’s Benrahma (Daily Mail and ExWHUemployee).

Football Insider claims Moyes is going for both players with designs on landing one of them.

Eze, 22, scored 14 goals and provided eight assists from mid-table QPR’s 46 league matches. He is said to be Moyes’s top target (Evening Standard).

Benrahma, 24, has 17 goals and nine assists and will only be sold if the Bees are denied promotion.

Money a problem for Hammers

West Ham will face competition for the attacking duo from other Premier League clubs, with Crystal Palace especially keen on Eze.

And money is an issue for West Ham.


Moyes has been told he will have to sell players to buy anyone (Claret & Hugh).

And The Daily Star now claims West Ham have a specific transfer plan in place to do just that.

The Star – and The Mirror – reports that West Ham are already actively seeking the specific sales of Albian Ajeti, Felipe Anderson and Andriy Yarmolenko as well as several other first team players.

Moyes has plan to fund moves – report

Moyes then plans to use that money to get one of Eze or Benrahma over the line as soon as possible.

The Hammers will also look to sell Manuel Lanzini, Arthur Masuaku, Fabian Balbuena and Winston Reid while the club are open to offers for Sebastien Haller.

West Ham fans will be in for a real treat if the club lands either Eze or Benrahma.

Both are young, exciting talents – particularly Eze who would threaten the England squad if he performs in the Premier League.
