Fulham are reportedly making an attempt to hijack Lyon’s deal to signal Stated Benrahma from West Ham.
That’s in line with Foot Mercato’s Santi Aouna, who claims Marco Silva’s Cottagers try a late sprint for the Algerian’s signature.
After scheduling a non-public jet and medical in France, Benrahma, 28, seems to have given the inexperienced mild to a switch to Lyon.
Nevertheless, with Fulham now ‘pushing exhausting’ to scupper the potential deal, the West Ham winger’s future stays vastly unsure.
Nearly sure to depart the Hammers earlier than tonight’s deadline, the 28-year-old should now determine the place he desires his subsequent problem to be — Ligue 1 or London.
Ought to Fulham win the race for the proficient 28-year-old, it will ship an enormous sign of intent to the remainder of the Premier League, particularly the opposite golf equipment within the backside half, who will all be hoping they’ll keep away from relegation.
As for Benrahma, after falling massively out of favour with David Moyes, the Algeria worldwide’s high precedence might be to safe common minutes, and with that on provide at each golf equipment, the previous Brentford star should now make arguably the largest determination of his profession.
