West Ham United move for Keane Lewis-Potter throws Said Benrahma future into doubt

West Ham are said to be leading the race to sign Hull City midfielder Keane Lewis-Potter and this surely throws Said Benrahma’s future into even more doubt.

90min reported on 23 June that West Ham are leading the race for the 21-year-old attacker who managed 12 goals for the Tigers in the 2021/22 campaign.

With departures almost a certainty at the London Stadium, Benrahma’s West Ham future now looks is danger.

The Sun reported on 8 June that David Moyes is prepared to listen to offers for the 26-year-old Algerian, with the Scot growing frustrated with the attacker.

Benrahma scored eight times and notched six assists in the Premier League in the 2021/22 season.

Despite a profitable campaign, Moyes looks set to allow Benrahma leave the club.

Is that the right decision from the West Ham boss?

Bringing Lewis-Potter to the club would continue their excellent recruitment from the Championship and there is a good chance the youngster will go on to be a success at the London Stadium.

However, surely Benrahma has done enough despite being slightly inconsistent at times?

That level of attacking output in the Premier League is impressive and it is hard to understand why Moyes is eager to offload the Algerian.

There is no doubting that departures will have to take place at the Hammers this summer, but it’s important that the club offload players who are coming to the end of their contract or are entering the latter stages of their careers.

Moyes should do everything he can to land Lewis-Potter, but if that involves showing Benrahma the London Stadium door, then he should think again.
