Report: Benrahma deal very close

Said Benrahma is set to become a permanent player at West Ham in the next 24 hours, according to talkSPORT.

The winger arrived on loan from Brentford in the summer with a purchase option.

But the Hammers are now set to bring that forward, according to the new report, so they can free up space for the signing of Manchester United attacking midfielder Jesse Lingard.

The latter will arrive on a six-month loan until the end of the season and he could actually be in the squad for this weekend’s clash with Liverpool, should the deal go to plan.

Of course, the Irons already have two loan players at the club, with Craig Dawson in from Watford, so one deal had to be made permanent to facilitate Lingard’s signing.

The Hammers moved into the top four with their win over Crystal Palace in midweek and the signing of Lingard is another sign that David Moyes is being given the targets he wants as he spearheads our European push!

  1. Cannot see why we are going in for lingard don’t see what he will add plus he’s got history

    • I don’t really get it either as we seem to have a host of players that can play a similar position to Lingaard such as Bowen, Benrahma, Lanzini, Yarmolenko, Fornals (who was outstanding against Palace by the way)..

      However David Moyes is doing a fantastic job for us so I’m trusting his judgement and his knowledge of Lingaard. Perhaps he is losing confidence/patience with Lanzini and Lingaard might be the longer term replacement..

      Just enjoying being a Hammers fan at the moment!

    • 120 grand a week and a hefty loan fee? We should steer well clear. A defensive midfielder, quality wing back or striker, all needed. Not another attacking midfield player. Unless there are plans to sell Lanzini, then I can’t see this happening.

      • In regard to the Lingard loan lol.

      • I don’t see it ether, but all i know is every Moyes signing has been a success.

        I think its fair to say the majority of fans said not to sign Dawson. So glad they didn’t listen to us on that one. We can all have our oppions that’s football, but it proves we really don’t know everything.

      • Every article i’ve read says 75K a week.

    • Our squad is very thin. I see him as a temporary replacement for Snodgrass. He’s a player that Moyes knows well and knows he can rely on him to do a specific job.

  2. My guess is he cant find a striker he wants to improve the team so Yarmo will do that job and Lingard replaces him as Bowens understudy?
