Said Benrahma had a sensational season with Brentford last season scoring 30 goals along with 27 assists. Now, the 25-year-old will have the opportunity to show his full range of abilities in the Premier League and will do so in a Claret and Blue shirt.
“I’m very, very happy to be a part of this team,” said the Club’s new No9. “West Ham is a historic club, which has been in the Premier League for a very long time. It included and still includes good players. It’s a massive club in England.
“I spoke to the manager, so I know exactly what he expects from me. I’ll try to meet his expectations on the pitch because he’s put faith in me and hopefully I can give it back on the pitch.
“I like this prospect [of playing in the Premier League]! I play football to enjoy myself first and foremost, but it’s always enjoyable to know you’re joining the most-watched league in the world, so I’m definitely looking forward to showing what I can do.”
