West Ham are “expecting” bids from Saudi Arabia for a player they are keen on offloading.

While there are some concerns being raised over the price that West Ham paid for Max Kilman, there is no doubt that he is a massive upgrade on what the club currently have at their disposal. He’s an English, Premier League proven defender who had captained Wolves for a while before his departure.

Above all else though, signing him was crucial because he was the one player Julen Lopetegui was desperate to bring to the London Stadium.

The biggest concern now is regarding who will play alongside him. Given that the Hammers conceded 74 league goals last season, you’d hope it wouldn’t be any of the centre-backs already at the club, Unfortunately, it seems highly unlikely that another one will be brought in without selling one first.

Thankfully, West Ham could be saved by the country whose money is taking over football – Saudi Arabia. Football Insider reports that the East London side are “expecting” bids from the Middle East to arrive soon for Nayef Aguerd, and they will hold out for £35 million.

When you take into account just how poor Aguerd has been since joining from Rennes for £30 million, it would be unbelievable business for our Irons to make their money back, let alone a profit. With there also believed to be interest from France, there could end up being a bidding war which would really work out nicely for the recruitment team as they will be allowed to reinvest any funds from the sale back into finding a replacement.
