West Ham United fans believe the club’s official account hinted that Said Benrahma’s move is going to be made permanent.
Sky suggested that West Ham will activate its buyout clause in Benrahma’s loan ahead of schedule to make room for Jesse Lingard.
And, oddly enough, the official West Ham website posted a tweet that focused on Benrahma yesterday, as rumors continued to swirl.
This has thrilled West Ham supporters, who now believe the deal for Lingard is about to be finalized.
West Ham have to make Benrahma’s move permanent as they are only receiving two loans for the season.
With the Hammers currently having Benrahma and Craig Dawson on loan, they are unable to bring in Lingard, until one of those moves is made permanent.
Benrahma is arguably yet to show his best form at West Ham, although the Algerian was able to show off his talent in previews.
David Moyes worked hard to get Benrahma to fit into his system, and the former Brentford man is now gaining more and more regular starting chances.
