West Ham United have officially completed a permanent deal for Said Benrahma, who was originally loaned out from Brentford. The news comes with David Moyes’ side flying high in the fight for Europe having gone unbeaten in their last six league games.
The attacking midfielder is yet to score for his new side, but, his influence on the West Ham side cannot be questioned.

A Transfer to Signify the Progress Made at West Ham
Recruitment has always been an issue at West Ham; whether it is the appointment of a new manager or the signing of a supposed star striker, things usually fail to work out as planned. But those days are over, it seems.
This month, they have sold the unneeded Sebastien Haller and instantly reinvested for their future. Whilst Haller was surplus to requirements, Benrahma is primed and ready to lead West Ham to unprecedented heights at the London Stadium.
On the pitch, under David Moyes, the Hammers have undoubtedly improved. Now, off the pitch, they are showing signs of progression.
Potentially Paving the Way for Lingard
The Premier League rules state that a club can only have two players signed on loan at any given time. For that reason, with Benrahma and Craig Dawson already on loan, West Ham could not pursue a deal for Manchester United midfielder Jesse Lingard.
Now, though, with Benrahma secured permanently, space is there for West Ham to make their move. Should they add the quality of Lingard to the side, a place in Europe may become increasingly likely as the season progresses and West Ham’s rise continues.
