West Ham keen on Saïd Benrahma after £13m bid for Joshua King is rejected

  • Brentford demand at least £25m for Algerian winger
  • Bournemouth have also rejected €7m bid for King from Torino


West Ham are set to intensify their efforts to sign Brentford’s Saïd Benrahma after having a £13m bid for Joshua King rejected by Bournemouth. David Moyes is keen to strengthen his attack but Brentford will demand at least £25m for Benrahma, one of the standout performers in the Championship last season.

King, who is out of contract next summer, is keen to return to the Premier League and has attracted interest from Aston Villa, Brighton and West Brom, who are also pushing to sign a striker before Friday’s transfer deadline for deals between the top flight and the English Football League. Bournemouth are thought to want in excess of £17m for the forward.

"Once revolutionaries, Wenger and Mourinho on verge of irrelevance."  Tony Evans (ESPN)

mourinho wenger fight
Mourinho & Wenger did fight on the touchline

10 reasons why Mourinho is the new Wenger:

1. He can't win big trophies anymore
  • Last Champions League win was 9 years ago
  • Ryan Giggs tells Gareth Bale to snub José Mourinho and stay at Real Madrid. The Wales manager says forward can win more trophies at Bernabéu (The Guardian)
  • "Roy Keane: My goodness, the manager was including the Charity Shield as a major trophy. My know you're in trouble." (the Express)
  • Jose Mourinho's opinion of the Europa League has changed drastically in four years. Jose Mourinho has insisted winning the Europa League is a much greater achievement than finishing in the top four, four years after insisting he did not “want my players to feel the Europa League is our competition.” (The Independent)
