Trevor Sinclair said on talkSPORT (12:30pm, October 14, 2020) that he does not think that West Ham United need to sign Joshua King from Bournemouth before the summer transfer window in England closes on Friday.
The former West Ham winger believes that the London club should sign Brentford winger Said Benrahma instead of Norway international striker King.
According to The Guardian, the Hammers – who are rated at 9/2 by Betfair to win against Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League this weekend – are confident of securing the services of the 25-year-old Algeria international this week, but the Premier League club are also looking at King as a potential alternative.
Sinclair said on talkSPORT (12:30pm, October 14, 2020): “I like Benrahma, very clever player, got a lot of creativity. For me, I’d rather see Benrahma (join).
“King is a great player and he’ll score goals in the Premier League but when you’ve got (Michail) Antonio playing like he is and (Sebastien) Haller, I don’t think you need that.”
According to WhoScored, Benrahma scored 17 goals and provided nine assists in the Championship for Brentford last season.
During the 2018-19 campaign, the 25-year-old – who can also operate as a forward – scored 10 goals and provided 14 assists in the league for the Bees, according to WhoScored.
King scored six goals and provided four assists in the Premier League for Bournemouth last season, while during the 2018-19 campaign, the striker scored 12 goals and provided three assists in the league, according to WhoScored.
