West Ham will hold out for profit on defender, despite his woeful form for the club.

While there were a fair few positives to take from the season that just finished, there were also a lot of negatives. West Ham did manage to push for Europe for most of the season, but with the position they were in heading into 2024 you can’t help but feel disappointed that they fell so far short.

By far the biggest reason that they ended up falling off was a shambolic defence that shipped goals left, right and centre. It was so bad in fact that they actually managed to break their club record for most goals conceded in a Premier League season.

Unsurprisingly, the centre-backs are an area the club are desperate to improve upon and, in doing so, they may sell Nayef Aguerd to raise funds for a replacement.

When the Moroccan first joined, there was a real buzz around him as he had all the makings of a top defender. Unfortunately, he hasn’t been able to cut the mistakes out of his game and he’s become a liability at the back.

Despite this, Football Insider claims that the Hammers are not only hoping to make back the £30 million they spent on him, but they also want to make at least a £5 million profit. With his former club Rennes said to be interested alongside others, including clubs from Saudi Arabia, they may somehow get what they’re wishing for.

If this is to happen, it will be unbelievable business from the club considering how poor he has been. Hopefully the money can be spent on someone who can be what we thought we was getting with Aguerd.
