West Ham move for Brentford attacker Benrahma appears off

West Ham's move for Brentford attacker Said Benrahma appears off.

The Mirror says Benrahma's £25million move from West Ham to Brentford is in danger of collapse.

The Hammers are instead poised to focus all their energies on tying up a deal for £18million-rated Bournemouth striker Josh King.

Winger Benrahma, who scored 17 goals in 43 appearances last season, has fallen out with Brentford over what are understood to be 'broken promises'.

Benrahma made contact with Bees Co-Director of Football Phil Giles over the weekend to make his position clear.

At that stage the Hammers had already agreed a deal worth £17million guaranteed and £8milion in add-ons with the Championship side, who had missed out on promotion in last season's Play Off Final.

But despite a medical set for when he returns from international duty, the deal appears to be off.
