West Ham’s newest signing Said Benrahma has trained with his new teammates for the first time ahead of the Hammers’ game against Manchester City this weekend.
The Algerian did not take any part in the 3-3 draw versus Tottenham on Sunday but he should be fit and available to feature when David Moyes’ side line up to face the Citizens at the London Stadium.
Benrahma will certainly add a greater attacking threat from the left-hand side of the pitch, and fans on Twitter are keenly anticipating seeing the 25-year-old in action for the Irons:

The winger scored 17 goals and contributed ten assists in 46 appearances for Brentford last campaign, and while he may not hit those type of numbers for West Ham, he is a player who knows where the back of the net is.
It will be interesting to see whether Moyes will drop Pablo Fornals following the arrival of Benrahma. The Spaniard has been in decent form at the start of this season but he now has a battle on his hands to keep his place in the team.
