Report suggests West Ham pursuit of Josh King over as Said Benrahma moves closer to deal – TBR – The Boot Room – Football News

West Ham United have seemingly reached an agreement with Brentford for a deal to sign Said Benrahma in a deal which could eventually be worth around £30 million. 

That is according to a report from the Daily Mail, who claim the Algerian will undergo the second part of his Hammers medical this morning after finalising an agreement over a bonus package with the Bees. 

However, the deal might mean the end to another pursuit of West Ham’s. 

The Hammers have been trying to secure a deal for Bournemouth striker Josh King but have not managed to agree on a price with the Cherries and a deal now looks to be dead in the water.

Bournemouth want £16 million for King but West Ham made an offer of £13 million earlier this week and that appeared to be the limit of their interest. 

 

With Benrahma now arriving, it seems unlikely West Ham will have the funding available to also make a move for the Norwegian forward. 

West Ham wanted King as wide and central attacking cover but it seems the club will be fairly confident they have the players necessary in attack to have a successful season in the Premier League, now Benrahma is on his way in. 

King will now be hoping for interest from elsewhere or will start preparing himself for a season in the Championship.
