West Ham have apparently changed their stance on Said Benrahma early into the January transfer window.

Disappointingly, Said Benrahma’s big move to the Premier League never really worked out. Despite scoring one of the club’s most historic goals, he never managed to really find his feet under David Moyes. The flair, skill and pace that the club signed him for seemingly vanished when he put on the claret and blue shirt. He showed moments of brilliance, but never reached the heights that were expected of him.

With the Hammers strapped for cash this January, it seems like it is only a matter of time before the Algerian says his goodbyes to the East London faithful. 

Lyon, Fulham and Wolves are all said to be interested in acquiring the winger’s services this month. Unfortunately though, it does not seem like the Irons will be getting the money they had hoped for.

Initially it was believed that the club were holding out for a figure around £22 million, doing which would recover a good portion of what they paid for him. However, this seems to have changed fairly drastically, Claret and Hugh have reported. 

Allegedly, the club are now willing to consider all offers that come their way for him. They are hoping to get a fee around the £15 million mark, but even that might be too much. There is some hope though, with three clubs holding firm interest there may be an opportunity to generate more for him. 

If he is to go, then us fans will forever be grateful for that penalty he scored in the Conference League final. It has not been a successful transfer overall but, for that goal alone, the money the club paid was well worth it.
