Nayef Aguerd is getting closer to the Premier League
Essential in Bruno Genesio’s team with 40 games played this season, the lion of the Atlas, Nayef Aguerd is not sure to stay at Stade Rennais.
The versatile defender is in high demand, particularly in the Premier League where West Ham are pushing hard to bring in the defender. According to information from Daily Mail, the leaders of the Hammers have accelerated negotiations in recent hours with Nayef Aguerd and seem to be on target to sign the Moroccan international.
Nayef Aguerd would be sensitive to the West Ham project. Representatives of the Atlas Lion have arrived in England to speed up negotiations with the Hammers. and finalize the final details for his visit.
West Ham are therefore determined to sign Nayef Aguerd and are said to be ready to put over £20million for his transfer. It remains to be seen whether that will be enough to convince Stade Rennais to sell their player as they prepare for the looming European campaign.
The Rennais could be tempted by this juicy sale and make a good sale with Nayef Aguerd, recruited in 2018 for 4 million euros from Dijon. But the Bretons have so far remained very tough in the negotiations. They would claim no less than 40 million euros before giving up their Moroccan.
West Ham will no doubt have to increase their offer if they wish to afford Nayef Aguerd. Negotiations are currently continuing in order to come closer to the conditions of each.
