West Ham: The Telegraph ‘sources’ share big Aguerd transfer update -West Ham Transfer Rumours

As per ‘French sources’, speaking to The Telegraph, a big West Ham United transfer update has come to light involving Rennes defender Nayef Aguerd.

The Lowdown: Moyes eyes move…

Irons boss David Moyes attempted to sign the Morocco international at the start of this Premier League season, a failed bid which will arguably be rued when looking at West Ham’s most recent defensive injury crisis.

The Scotsman was apparently interested in a deal to sign Aguerd but talks did not progress to the final stages, prompting Rennes’ star defender to put pen to paper on a new deal until 2025 (The Telegraph).

A key player for the Ligue 1 side over 2021/2022, it appears Moyes could now return to the charge as The Telegraph share an update.

The Latest: Telegraph share big update…

According to their ‘French sources‘, the Hammers are ‘looking at reviving a deal’ for Aguerd amid Moyes’s search for a new centre-back.

The 6 foot 2 defender is apparently back on Moyes’ personal radar as he sets his sights for the summer, and what’s more, Rennes are ‘are braced for West Ham to make their move.’

The Verdict: Time to pounce?

Rated at around £20m, Aguerd could prove to be a shrewd addition going by his brilliant form over this year.

Lauded as the ‘real boss’ of Rennes by journalist and former Angers press manager Mohamed Toubache-Ter (Twitter), the 26-year-old is commanding in the air – winning more duels than any player in their squad domestically (WhoScored).

He also rules the roost in terms of clearances, averaging a colossal 4.1 of them per game, more than any West Ham player bar Kurt Zouma (WhoScored).

Going by his numbers and plaudits, Aguerd could well be the ideal man to partner Zouma under Moyes next season.
