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!
