West Ham enter the Europa League group stages next season in what will be a more demanding campaign overall and the Hammers arguably need to start making moves.

The Latest: West Ham talks ongoing…

In what could be a positive update, Football Insider claim that West Ham talks are ongoing as they look to sign 6 foot 2 defender Aguerd from Rennes this summer.

An Irons source has explained to Football Insider that David Sullivan is personally spearheading the club’s pursuit for Aguerd after he was identified as a top target.

West Ham are prepared to invest significantly in signing a new centre-back this summer and GSB have now been told it will cost up to £16 million to sign the Moroccan.

The Verdict: Bargain?

Aguerd is a name that has only recently emerged as West Ham target new defenders.

The centre-half was a mainstay for Rennes over 2020/2021 and one of their key players, starting 35 matches whilst averaging an impressive 90.4% pass accuracy out from the back (WhoScored).

A colossal presence, he also made the second-most clearances per game (2.9) out of their entire squad whilst racking up more blocks in that time than any Rennes player with over 10 appearances (WhoScored).

At £16m, the 25-year-old could be an answer to West Ham’s defensive conundrum.
