The exciting attacker joins the Hammers from the EFL Championship club on an initial season-long loan deal, with an agreement to make the transfer permanent.
“I’m very, very happy to be a part of this team,” said the Club's new Number 9.
“West Ham is a historic club, which has been in the Premier League for a very long time. It included and still includes good players. It’s a massive club in England.
“I spoke to the manager, so I know exactly what he expects from me. I’ll try to meet his expectations on the pitch because he’s put faith in me and hopefully I can give it back on the pitch.
“I like this prospect [of playing in the Premier League]! I play football to enjoy myself first and foremost, but it’s always enjoyable to know you’re joining the most-watched league in the world, so I’m definitely looking forward to showing what I can do.”
Benrahma will not be available for Sunday’s trip to Tottenham Hotspur due to his registration being finalized later than the deadline hour.
The 25-year-old scored 17 goals in 43 appearances last season as Brentford narrowly missed out on promotion to the Premier League.
