West Ham are discussing private terms with Said Benrahma more than his proposed £30m transfer through Brentford.
The 25-year-old will take a medical in following 24 hours if and when personal terms are usually agreed.
West Pork are increasingly hopeful Benrahma may complete his move ahead of Friday’s deadline getting agreed a deal with Brentford previously this week .
Conversations between West Ham and Benrahma are over a five-year deal.
Earlier on Wednesday, Benrahma held a gathering with Brentford officials to try and solve a dispute over a payment this individual believes he is owed.
Benrahma scored 17 goals within 46 appearances for Brentford final season as they reached the Tournament play-off final before Thomas Frank’s side were beaten by Fulham in extra-time at Wembley.
Meanwhile, Western Ham remain interested in Bournemouth ahead Joshua King despite having had the £13m bid for him declined at the weekend, with the Championship membership valuing the Norway international in around £18m.
Ruler, who has one year remaining on his agreement, has scored 48 Premier Little league goals for the club since becoming a member of in 2015.
A domestic transfer window among Premier League and EFL night clubs remains open until October sixteen – dubbed Deadline Day 2 – but how does it function?
The international deadline day – where English clubs can buy, sell and loan gamers from abroad – closed upon October 5, but an agreement among Premier League and EFL groups means players can still be moved in England.
Subsequent consultation between the leagues – also because FIFA allows a summer move window to run for up to 12 days – Premier League clubs could do business with EFL sides for an additional 11 days in a bid in order to bolster their squads.
They can make loan or long lasting signings, as well as selling, but right now there cannot be transfers between Premier Little league teams.
All EFL clubs can still do domestic company with any English team up till Deadline Day Two next Fri.
The domestic move window will run until 5pm on Friday, October 16.
