West Ham are near wrapping up a deal to signal Rennes centre-back Nayef Aguerd after sweetening up their take care of £4.2million in add-ons, in keeping with The Guardian.
The newspaper reported on 31 Could that the Hammers have made a bid of £29.8million to signal the 26-year-old as David Moyes goals to signal a brand new left-sided centre-half so as to add to his squad ahead of subsequent season.
The Guardian provides that Diop, 25, “may very well be obtainable” this summer time on account of Aguerd’s potential transfer to the capital as negotiations rumble on with Rennes.
If West Ham need Aguerd that badly then why not simply pay the additional few million that Rennes in all probability need and get the deal over and carried out with.
We’re fed up of the Hammers dragging their heels via negotiations to try to save on what’s in soccer phrases, the equal of unfastened change.
Aguerd has loved a superb season in Ligue 1 with Rennes, serving to them qualify for the Champions League.
Solely three groups conceded fewer than Rennes in France’s top-flight and Aguerd little question performed a large function in that success.
West Ham have to get to work including to quite a few areas of their squad.
Our defence has been in want of some TLC for some time with Angelo Ogbonna – the club’s only left-sided centre-back – battling accidents and probably exhibiting his age a bit.
We’re effective for right-sided defenders, which is why the query has been raised about Diop’s future in East London, however on the left, we can’t depend on Aaron Cresswell as a makeshift centre-half.
In different West Ham information, a proposal has been made to make a behind-the-scenes appointment on the club.
