World renowned journalist Fabrizio Romano has provided an update on Nayef Aguerd’s potential departure this January.

There is probably not a single sports journalist who is as widely known and respected as Fabrizio Romano. He is a good friend of The West Ham Way and someone who seems to have sources for every single club in the sport.

With rumours circling that the Hammers are considering selling Nayef Aguerd, some fans have been left confused by what the situation is. Fortunately, Fabrizio has been able to provide some extra information on what exactly is going on after Dharmesh revealed that West Ham would listen to offers.

“Saudi clubs have approached West Ham for Nayef Aguerd, as @skysports_sheth called,” the Italian tweeted to his 19.4 million followers. 

“AS Roma and AC Milan have also made enquiries but financially not possible as West Ham will NOT accept loan proposal,” adding that “Aguerd, very happy in Premier League.”

Aguerd has shown how brilliant he can be at times, but has been inconsistent in doing so. He has failed to really justify his price tag and our own ExWHUEmployee revealed that the club would consider a deal, but only if they got their money back.

Given that he is away with Morocco for AFCON, it could mean a deal is slightly more difficult to negotiate. However, clubs from Saudi Arabia were interested in signing him in the Summer too and, as we all know, if they really want to acquire his services this month then they have the financial capabilities to do so.

If Aguerd does go, then our Irons will desperately need to sign a centre-back. He certainly is not someone that David Moyes will be pleased to see go but, at the same time, it could present an opportunity for him to improve on his defence by bringing in a more solid consistent and solid option.
