Fabrizio Romano has just shared a major transfer boost for manager David Moyes as news emerges on one of his key West Ham United summer targets.
The Lowdown: West Ham plans emerge…
As reported by reliable outlets, the east Londoners have already got plans in place for the looming window as club owners GSB and head of recruitment Rob Newman seemingly aim to back Moyes.
Which striker should West Ham sign?
According to The Evening Standard, after West Ham failed to seal a place in the Premier League‘s top six last season, it is believed that Moyes has a striker, central midfielder and left-back top of his priorities.
They’ve also been tipped to make Paris-Saint Germain loanee Alphonse Areola’s move a permanent one as veteran mainstay keeper Lukasz Fabianski enters the twilight phase of his career.
As well as this, Moyes has stepped up talks for Morocco international defender Nayef Aguerd, who has been described as a ‘key’ Moyes target.
The Latest: Romano shares Aguerd boost…
As the Hammers attempt a deal for Rennes’ star centre-half, big name reporter Romano has now shared a very promising update as Aguerd eyes a move to Rush Green.
“West Ham are progressing in negotiations with Rennes to sign Nayef Aguerd as new centre-back. Talks ongoing with positive feelings, Aguerd wants the move – up to the clubs.
“West Ham are optimistic but still waiting to complete the agreement.”
The Verdict: Get it done…
The colossal powerhouse made more clearances per 90 than anyone in the Rennes squad, marking himself out as a reliable and assured presence (WhoScored).
It’s clear by his reputation and performances last year he could be a real potential asset for Moyes at West Ham.
