The potential departure of West Ham’s Nayef Aguerd could be beneficial for everyone involved.

If Nayef Aguerd could have cut the mistakes out of his game, he has the makings of a sensational centre-back. He has pace, unbelievable passing and, at times, great tackling. Unfortunately, those mistakes happen nearly every time he steps on the pitch and he has failed to get rid of them despite being in England for nearly two whole years.

Clearly West Ham’s biggest weak point is their defence. For a defensive side, having the fourth most goals conceded in the league is simply unacceptable and a complete overhaul is now needed.

In recent months, Aguerd has become a squad player as his faults become more and more apparent. Konstantinos Mavropanos has finally found form and has been West Ham’s best central defender by some distance. Disappointingly for Aguerd, ‘Dinos’ simply looks better when playing alongside Kurt Zouma.

Aguerd is one of the players that the club is open to selling and, according to Ben Jacobs, clubs in Saudi Arabia are interested in acquiring his services. Both Al-Ittihad and Al-Qadsiah would consider a move for the Moroccan.

Considering the fact he still has 3 years left on his contract, West Ham were expected to try and recover the money they paid for him but now that the Saudi Arabians are involved they may be hoping to make a profit. Any deal involving them could mean brilliant money for both the club and the player. Ultimately, he really isn’t worth keeping at the club unless he improves drastically so, even if they make a small loss, in the long term it would be beneficial to accept any offer that’s suitable.
