West Ham set to trigger eight-figure agreement with EFL side as Moyes searches for fresh incoming



Brentford and West Ham United are set to shake on a £25m fee for the service of Said Benrahma, with the Hammers looking to make room in their squad for the arrival of Jesse Lingard on loan. 

Benrahma joined West Ham on loan from Brentford back in the summer, with the London clubs eventually shaking on a deal to take the Algerian into the Premier League.

So far, the 25-year-old has made 12 appearances in the Premier League and has registered two assists.

There’s been enough to impress David Moyes and the Hammers, though, with reports suggesting that Benrahma is set to become a permanent West Ham player in the next 24 hours.

According to Alex Crooks, talkSPORT sources are confirming that a £25m fee will trigger Benrahma’s permanent signing at West Ham and open up a loan spot in Moyes’ squad for a new arrival.

It’s expected that Lingard will be the man to sign ahead of the weekend.

Benrahma’s time with Brentford was memorable, with the Algerian winger lighting up West London last season and helping Thomas Frank’s side to the play-off final.

He scored 17 goals last season and registered nine assists for the Bees.

The Verdict 

West Ham were always going to make Benrahma’s loan deal permanent, it was more a case of when that would happen.

It looks like being this January, with Moyes wanting Lingard through to door too.

That’s a sensible call for the Premier League side, whilst the cash injection will be a welcome boost for Brentford at this stage.

You feel that it is a deal that works for everyone.
