Said Benrahma - West Ham Complete Deal

Recommended Posts

There is hope among Leeds United and other interested clubs that Brentford will sell Said Benrahma for less than £20 million and not £25 million, according to The Telegraph.

It has been reported that Leeds, West Ham United, Aston Villa, Crystal Palace and Leicester City all are interested in signing Benrahma from Brentford in the summer transfer window.

The report has claimed that the Whites are ready to follow up their interest in the Algeria international winger by making an offer.

It has been further added that although Brentford – who lost to Fulham in the Championship playoff final this week – value the 24-year-old at £25 million, there is hope among interested parties that they will sell him for less than £20 million. (HITC)Arrow.png.25544acfbdb325f9168cdfc8a397c0e6.png

It depends how hard we go for it, I don't know how desperate we are for him compared to the others and their needs.

If it turns into a bidding war then for me we need to pull out, he's not essential and he remains unproven at that level. What we have is decent and I'd rather save the money and go big for Ben White.

Out of all those clubs, if you are Benrahma, realistically you'd probably choose Leicester anyway.

Strongest side of those mentioned and in Europe. Would be hard for him to turn them down.

Brentford know they have a hot commodity. I imagine it will be either Villa, Leeds our ourselves eventually coughing up.

It will be no loss to him if the move doesnt pay off now. Far better teams will be interested if he stays at Brentford for another season.

It seems like we have been advised to get this done before West Ham have the funds from player sales.

I know I mentioned on Twitter but it must be a preference of Benrahma's to stay in London surely if you and West Ham are the only clubs interested?

More than likely but I dont know who else would be interested at present. Leeds are after Rodrigo De Paul. Newcastle have Fraser/ASM. Leicester I imagine will want players that have succeeded in the PL previously.

If I was him I'd stay at Brentford for another year, but I imagine his concern is if he doesn't leave now and Brentford go up he may never get the chance to test himself at a higher level.

He's 25 so has quite a bit of time. 

I think if we're only relying on PL players previously it's risky and we have to expect to spend money, which we seemingly don't have a lot of xD.

Don't mind if that's the case but only if we buy players to improve our squad depth alongside it.

Not sure where this puts Said in their team with Zaha and Eze, but I just want the window up and to see him gone or stuck with us already

Shame he’s off to West Ham, doesn’t seem the right fit for him; suppose they are the only ones willing to give him the type of mad wages he was looking for.

Big fee that, I can see why we were looking oversea's now for a higher calibre of player because it seemed obvious to me we'd get him as soon as we went up.

That said, I do think he'll be totally fine up here and it's a good move from West Ham having him one side, Bowen the other. That's a really balanced attack.

I still can't quite understand why the Crystal Palace move didn't happen? I thought he was a dead cert to be going there? I know Zaha has stayed but still, I wouldn't necessarily say they don't need him? @The Palace Fan

Think him and Eze might be too similar and take up similar spots on the pitch

Conflicting stories. Somewhere in the middle is possibly the truth. Roy Hodgson seems to think we don't need him which is laughable. I imagine its a combination of West Ham being his first choice and us being unwilling to meet the 30m valuation earlier in the transfer window prior to West Ham raising the funds.

Seems like a missed opportunity to me.

I thought that would have made a great statement for the club to sign him along with the likes of Eze and keeping Zaha.

Fitting that this could well be his last goal for us...but the Mirror are reporting that the move is about to collapse

Not sure what to make of this...we’ve accepted close to £30m for Said, West Ham agreeing terms, but deal is off cos us and Said have fallen out? Don’t get it

@Danny Have you already brought in a replacement or do you have one lined up?

I mean surely whatever the hold up is, your club wants some clarity and time to bring in a replacement if they haven't already.

We’ve brought on Ghoddos from Amiens, still have Canos and brought in Fosu from Oxford in Jan. think we’re stocked

West Ham fans 2019: "Where has all the money gone!!?!!"

West Ham fans 2020: "If you think we wanted our owners out because of money then I'm afraid you don't understand the situation".
