As a fresh transfer becomes apparent, West Ham United reacts to Said Benrahma’s bid.

According to Foot Mercato, Marseille’s loan offer for Said Benrahma, which included a buyout option, was rejected by West Ham.

 

The website stated on January 16 that the London team had previously turned down the Ligue 1 club’s formal bid for the misfit Hammer, requesting £19.8 million in exchange for the player.However, considering both Wolves and Brentford are probably interested in loaning the out-of-favour winger, it could be challenging to reject another loan-to-buy offer from the French team.

 

West Ham would still be able to recoup some of their investment on the 154-time appearance maker even though they would not immediately notice the effects of the funds.

According to BBC Sport, the Hammers used their option to make the forward’s 2020 £5 million loan from Brentford permanent for a cost of £20 million plus £5 million in add-ons.

 

Given his lack of playing time this season, Marseille represents a solid alternative to help collect some of that transfer price back, even though West Ham is unlikely to turn a profit on the player. It is a move that benefits all sides.

 

Despite being a key player in West Ham’s Europa Conference League winning campaign, he has only made five Premier League starts this season. David Moyes appears to have other ideas for him.
