West Ham United icon Trevor Sinclair has praised Said Benrahma’s performances for the Hammers and believes there’s still a lot more to come from the 25-year-old.
Benrahma joined West Ham on loan from Championship side Brentford in October, with Sky Sports reporting that the deal has now been made permanent for £20million plus add-ons.
The Algeria international has made 14 appearances for the Hammers in all competitions, registering two assists, but is yet to score a goal.
That said, Benrahma’s performances have been impressive, and Sinclair believes that West Ham are yet to unlock the attacker’s full potential.
“I think there’s a lot more to come from Benrahma,” he told talkSPORT.
“There was a lot said when he was at Brentford; 83 games and 27 goals. This season he’s played 12 games (in the league) and got no goals.
“They are still to unlock the potential of Benrahma but the performances are there.”
Benrahma may be yet to get on the scoresheet but he’s by far the most creative player in the team and has been a joy to watch in claret and blue.
His performances have been key to West Ham’s great form this season, and with his loan deal reportedly made permanent, David Moyes now has a spare domestic loan spot at his disposal too.
