Report: 19-goal striker agrees to personal terms with West Ham, £ 30m deal completed – originally published on Sportslens.com
According to Sky Sport West Ham United and Brentford in advanced talks on a deal that could potentially be worth on the order of £ 30million to Said Benrahma.
Hammer's manager David Moyes wants the Algerian to step up his attack before the EFL transfer deadline (October 16) and it seems a deal is near.
Italian journalist Nicolo Schira claims that Benrahma agreed personal terms and conditions on a five-year contract with West Ham after they had selected him to replace Felipe Anderson.

The Brazilian has loaned Porto for a season and the Hammers are planning to use another attacker in Algeria.
So you have only signed the Czech right-back Vladimir Coufal from Slavia, Prague, far this window, and will now try to strengthen another department.
West Ham has been linked to Benrahma all summer and the bees are ready to part with him at the right price.
Crystal Palace has also been linked to the 25-year-old after finishing with 17 goals and nine assists in 46 championship games last season as Brentford reached the play-off finals.
The Algerian scored twice to knock Fulham out of the League Cup in a 3-0 win earlier this month and West Ham could deal with such a deadly finisher in the final third if they want to impress and leave in 2020/21 front.
