West Ham To Suffer £10M Transfer Loss on Defender

Atletico Madrid are emerging as favourites to sign West Ham centre-half Nayef Aguerd in a £20 million-plus swoop. This would represent an incredible loss of £10 million on the defender David Moyes chased for over two years.

The Spanish giants hope to agree on a fee with the Hammers for the 28-year-old Moroccan, who is keen to move to LaLiga. Aguerd had been expected to join a Saudi Pro League club, but no team has come close to making an acceptable offer.

Aguerd’s career never truly got going at West Ham following an injury in a pre-season friendly against Glasgow Rangers. He did play in the Europa Conference League final victory against Fiorentina, but he struggled for form last season.

He recently changed agents in an effort to secure a move away from East London, and there were rumours from within the club that the player was less than committed to West Ham in the build-up to the African Cup of Nations.

Fabricio Bruno and Max Kilman remain potential targets for the Hammers, although the former may have priced himself out of a move with his wage demands.

    It won’t be a 10 mio loss you cant just compare purchase and sale prices…there is the amortisation during the time he has been with us so 1 year would have been written down…also it’s not clear if bonuses are included in the 35€mio purchase price or sale price

    Argued is a very good footballer. But like plenty of players that have came to the premier struggles with the intensity of it . Shevchenko veron Di Maria all immediately spring to mind .

  • Jellied Eel says:

    Not one moment that I can think of to suggest that he was really committed to WH. Played like a journeyman.

  • John Ayris says:

    Disappointing signing. As someone pointed out his value will have been written down, his form hasn’t been good enough to make him more desirable. He doesn’t want to be here so best he goes.

    Ah, finally, something we’re good at in the transfer window
