West Ham is prepared to sell Said Benrahma and Nayef Aguerd, two first team players, in the hopes that a buyer will come up before the winter transfer window closes.


Backroom staff became anxious when Aguerd did not make appearances in the run-up to the Afcon, supposedly due to a prolonged illness that resolved in time for him to travel to Morocco.


In addition to his consistent lack of form and other injury concerns, this has focused people’s attention, and he is now in a situation where, should the club be able to recoup the £30 million they paid for him, or almost that much, he appears set to be on his way.


Rumours of interest from Saudi teams have been around for a while, but our main source clarified yesterday that this was untrue and added, “We wouldn’t mind some over the top Saudi offers for some of our players!”


Benrahma is another player on the out-list should a deal be approved, despite the fact that French clubs have expressed no interest in signing him. He has also grown to be a major disappointment to the backroom elite.


The board finds Ben Johnson’s continued demands for about £60,000 a week to stay at the club intolerable, and if he doesn’t lower his expectations, he will undoubtedly be leaving as well.
