West Ham United did not make the most of the international transfer window, but there is still some time remaining for them to do some business.
The domestic window is open until October 16, presenting the Hammers with an opportunity to strengthen before the Premier League recommences.
The Hammers undoubtedly need reinforcements.
They may have won their last two games by an aggregate scoreline of 7-0, but most of the club’s supporters acknowledge the team needs improving or else trouble could be in store.
Currently, there are two players being linked with late moves to the London Stadium from the Championship, and if the club can pull off the double deal, a mid-table finish and perhaps even a sneak into the top 10 would genuinely be possible.
TBR’s View – Benrahma and King could transform West Ham
West Ham are said (Sky Sports) to be in advanced talks with Brentford for winger Said Benrahma, and Sky Sports have claimed there has been a £13.5 million bid rejected for Bournemouth attacker Josh King.
Put simply, West Ham signing these two players will make a massive difference.
King is a proven goalscorer in the Premier League and can operate both right up top and on the shoulder of a number nine, making him difficult to track.
And Benrahma is arguably the biggest talent in the Championship at the moment and is capable of scoring, assisting and providing moments of magic.
Another defender would be ideal, but with King and Benrahma added into the mix along with the likes of Michail Antonio, Pablo Fornals and Jarrod Bowen, the Irons could have enough firepower to outscore a lot of teams in the Premier League and potentially sneak into the top 10 come the end of the season.
