Said Benrahma has reached terms with West Ham and is closing on a move from Brentford, according to sources.
The Algerian international, who is on duty with his country at this very moment, is one of the leading players in the Championship and is highly desired by several Premier League sides.
Crystal Palace was reportedly close to the signing of the 24-year-old in September, while Roy5-007 distanced the Eagles from the winger’s transfer.
But it seems like the Hammers are going to pip their London rivals to a championship star again, as they allegedly close down on Benrahma.
Italian journalist Nicolo Schiara reports that the Algerian has agreed to a five-year agreement with West Ham, which sees the winger as a replacement for the current Porto signed by Felipe Anderson.
All that remains to be agreed is a fee, with Brentford keeping an estimated £ 30 million for a player who moved to West London in 2018 for an estimated £2,7 million.
