The foreign transfer window for top-flight clubs to complete deals closed last week, but until 5pm this Friday domestic transfers are still allowed between Premier League and Championship sides.

According to the Athletic, West Ham are hoping to take advantage of that elongated domestic window by recruiting Benrahma, who has been linked with a host of Premier League sides after failing to earn promotion to the division last season following the play-off loss to Fulham.
