The Algerian star is currently not being used at West Ham and wants to leave in the next winter market to look for more playing opportunities. French media reported that many clubs from Ligue 1 want to “roll out the red carpet” to invite Benrahma to play football, the most prominent of which are Lyon and Marseille.
In particular, in recent days, there has been news that Lyon has begun preliminary negotiations with the 28-year-old star’s representative to make a transfer deal next January, but The player born in 1995 himself wanted to join Marseille more than the home team Groupama.
As for Marseille, after receiving support from Benrahma, coach Gennaro Gattuso’s team is preparing to send an offer to loan the Algerian star to West Ham. The Velodrome team does not currently have a strong financial foundation, so they cannot approve spending a large amount of money on transfers. Marseille wants to “see” whether Benrahma is suitable for the team’s playing style before deciding to buy him permanently.
West Ham is also said to be ready to let the 28-year-old player leave in the near future because coach David Moyes wants to bring a better quality striker to the London Olympic Stadium.
