DEFINITELY LEAVING: West Ham to let player leave come January.

He’s attracting great interest from abroad.

It’s been reported that West Ham could consider making a “surprise” move by cashing in one of their senior squad members this January.

Hammers seal dramatic win 2-1 away to Burnley

At this time last month, manager David Moyes was under a lot of pressure, having just recovered from a crushing 1-0 loss to struggling Everton at home. Since then, West Ham has triumphed over teams like Arsenal, Nottingham Forest, Olympiacos, and the Clarets four times in a row across all competitions.

Their most recent Premier League three-pointer appeared to be a real smash and grab. Divin Mubama, a young striker with promise who is being extended a contract with West Ham, was heavily involved in Dara O’Shea’s own goal, and in extra time, Tomas Soucek’s spectacular volley completed the victory.


However, Moyes, speaking after the contest, was adamant his side can play better. “We were really disappointed with our performance in the first-half. We needed to do better – we never played any forward ball or put them under

any pressure,” Moores commented after West Ham defeated Burnley (via BBC).

Halfway through, we did. We made some good chances and attempts at goal, in my opinion. We managed to sneak a win in the end; that’s just how things work in the Premier League. Many teams, including Burnley, have very little mutual understanding, and that is still the case today.

Regaining some momentum with a few straight victories and a solid road victory – we still have room to improve, but we’re in a strong league position, still in the League Cup, and leading our European group. We must also remember the positive things we are accomplishing.”

West Ham may have an opportunity to increase their chances of putting on more visually striking performances with the arrival of star players as the January transfer window approaches. For example, they are severely lacking a goal scorer, and rumors have it that technical director Steidten is in a desperate attempt to bring in a striker.

But according to ExWHUemployee, January funds are reportedly fairly scarce, so the team might have to take a sell-to-buy strategy into consideration.

West Ham could sell Benrahma

Football Insider and journalist Pete O’Rourke reported that winger Said Benrahma might be on the Irons’ trade block.

In fact, O’Rourke asserts that West Ham may contemplate selling Benrahma in light of Saudi Arabia’s interest, calling it a “surprise” move considering his standout performance in the Europa Conference League the previous season.


However, this season, the Algerian has started four of their 13 league games, and it’s thought that he wants to play more first team football in 2024.Additionally, Frank McAvennie, a former striker, described Benrahma as a “wonderful, wonderful talent” and told West Ham Zone that he was mistaken to doubt the winger’s signing in 2020.

“I thought it was stupid at the time because they brought in Benrahma and sold the young player everyone was talking about who was in the exact same position,” McAvennie remarked.

“But he proved me wrong, he’s a great talent, a wonderful, wonderful talent. So it just shows you David Moyes knows what he’s doing.”
