West Ham on brink of signing Brentford attacker Said Benrahma

West Ham United are on the brink of signing Brentford attacker Said Benrahma.

The Algerian ace is currently away on international duty, so personal terms and a medical would need to be sorted upon his return.

However, the Hammers have agreed a fee with Brentford, which could rise to £30m including add-ons, reports the Athletic.

Crystal Palace, Leeds United and Aston Villa have also looked at the player, but West Ham are now thought to be in pole position.

The 25-year-old, who joined Brentford from Nice in 2018, scored a career-high 17 league goals last season as the Bees reached the Championship Play-Off Final, only to be beaten 2-1 by Fulham at Wembley.

He has already opened his account for the 2020/21 campaign, scoring twice in a Carabao Cup victory over Fulham.
