A journalist claims West Ham boss David Moyes has had a very important meeting with a star’s agent about a potential transfer.
West Ham are about to embark on a hectic schedule of 10 games in five weeks.
That will take the Hammers through to January 2nd – when things will get equally manic off the pitch as the winter window opens.
West Ham have clear priorities to sign a striker and left-back in the winter window.
As we reported recently, a source close to the West Ham owners has explained how the club intends to sign a new forward despite the threat of UEFA FFP sanctions.

West Ham must sell to buy – as they did during the summer window, raising £132m plus in sales to fund incomings.
One player it has been widely reported could be sacrificed to raise the cash needed is Said Benrahma.

Alan Nixon – a close contact of Moyes – has revealed that Benrahma has a new agent who is well connected with Arab clubs.
And one of his first jobs was to have a face-to-face meeting with Moyes about the Algerian.
Moyes told the agent that he does not necessarily want to lose Benrahma.
But Nixon claims it was agreed that West Ham will sell the bit-part winger if the right offer comes in purely to raise funds needed for other areas.
“Benrahma’s new agent is well connected among the leading Arab outfits and has recently been to London for a face to face meeting with Hammers chief David Moyes,” Nixon said on his Patreon.
“If the bid comes in Hammers may accept as Benrahma is not guaranteed a game with them these days and his appearances and game time are less.
“Moyes won’t want to push Benrahma out, especially with Europe still on the fixture list, but the right cash may sway the decision.”
