A lot of West Ham United fans reacting to recent transfer news which suggests that they are interested in signing Brentford forward Said Benrahma.
According to Footmercato, the Hammers are among a host of Premier League sides, including Chelsea, who want to sign the Bees player, for whom there could yet be a frenetic transfer scramble.
The 24-year-old has had a great season in the Championship so far, scoring 10 goals whilst registering seven assists, per WhoScored, and could be the ideal player the Irons need as their wingers Felipe Anderson and Andriy Yarmolenko have struggled this season – the pair have managed only four goals and five assists between them in the 2019/20 Premier League.
The Bees winger has posted match averages of 3.7 shots, 2.2 key passes and 3.1 successful dribbles, per WhoScored. This ranks him above any player in the Irons squad for those metrics and his amazing attacking intent could be exactly what the Hammers need in order to ensure that they aren’t fighting for their Premier League survival next season like they currently are.
Here is what some West Ham fans said following news of Benrahma’s transfer links:

Would rather get Eze

Eberechi Eze from QPR has been valued, supposedly, at only £12m – in view of this, West Ham should prioritise his signing given how good he is, how much potential he has and due to the fact he is worth much more than he currently valued at. Eze would be a great addition to squad.

Him or eze is quality

Really like Benrahma, but Mbuemo is the best of the BMW front 3 imo!
I’d rather sign him than Benrahma, he’s got 14 goals & 7 assists in his first season in the Championship & looks like he’d make the step up easily!

Great player but a winger and we have Felipe, Grady, Bowen, Antonio it’s arguably our strongest position

Watkins is the one to get physically think Benrahma would struggle in prem
