West Ham, Aston Villa battle for 2 Championship stars

West Ham and Aston Villa are going head-to-head for two Championship stars.

The Daily Star says the Hammers are eyeing a double transfer swoop on the Championship for Brentford's Said Benrahma and Bournemouth's Josh King.

Although the European transfer window closed on Monday, Premier League clubs are able to do business with EFL sides until October 16 during an extended domestic window.

Both winger Benrahma and striker King have been heavily linked with moves to Aston Villa this summer.

Benrahma scored 17 goals and grabbed nine assists last season and marked his first start this campaign with a stunning strike against Fulham in the Carabao Cup last week.
