Wolves ‘actively involved’ as £19.8m Premier League forward eyed by Fulham and Brentford

The latest transfer news as Wolves, Brentford and Fulham contact the representatives of a £19.8m Premier League winger.

Wolverhampton Wanderers have reportedly made contact with the representatives of West Ham United winger Saïd Benrahma but face competition from an array of other Premier League clubs – as well as French side Olympique Lyonnais.

Benrahma has played just 615 minutes in the Premier League for West Ham this season and he looks likely to be moved on this January. Wolves’ interest in the Algeria international emerged last week and it now appears some progression may have been made, though not as much as other teams in the fight.

Foot Mercato reports Brentford have now added Benrahma to their shortlist and have made contact with the player's entourage, while Fulham and Wolves are also said to be involved. Lyon are very keen, too, with a contractual offer on the table.

Benrahma is enjoying life in England, though, so might not make the move back across the Channel. A transfer back to former club Brentford might be tempting as some of his biggest successes were in West London. Fulham would be an easy move, too, given they're also in the capital.

Would Benrahma move to Wolves?

Although Wanderers are attempting to bring in Benrahma, the transfer might be risky for the player. It would be tricky to start consistently as Wolves already have Pedro Neto, Hwang Hee-chan, Matheus Cunha and Pablo Sarabia on the books.
