Benrahma ironed out issues over a bonus payment with Brentford earlier in the week, while personal terms were discussed on Wednesday evening.
Benrahma was a standout performer in the Championship last season, netting 17 goals as well as recording 10 assists as they just missed out on promotion.
The deal will come as another huge blow to the Bees, who had already lost Ollie Watkins to Aston Villa in a £33m deal early last month.
Meanwhile, King – who returned six goals and four assists in an injury-hit campaign – was close to leaving in January, but just as his move to potential move to Manchester United last winter, a move to the Hammers may now fail to materialise.
Bournemouth are holding out for £16m for the Norway international after rejecting an offer of £13m earlier this week.
