Video will have West Ham fans seriously excited as David Moyes reportedly nears first signing

A video will have West Ham United fans seriously excited as David Moyes reportedly nears his first signing of the summer.

West Ham are reportedly close to agreeing a deal to sign Rennes centre-back Nayef Aguerd when the summer transfer window opens on June 10th.

The likes of 90Min are reporting talks have been held with West Ham said to be close to agreeing a deal with a ‘willingness on both sides’ to get it done.

The Daily Mail also claims that Hammers boss Moyes has discussed the possibility of signing the left-footed 26-year-old with the board.

L’Equipe claim Aguerd has ‘won over’ Moyes with his brilliant performances for Rennes and Morocco.

And it is easy to see why.

Yes we know to be wary of the dazzling YouTube video reel when it comes to new signings.

Anyone watching Nikola Vlasic’s clips last year would have been dizzy at the prospect of seeing him play for West Ham. Unfortunately the reality has been very different.

But when it comes to defenders things are a bit more clear cut.

And one thing West Ham target Aguerd can certainly do is defend!

He also clearly possesses a lovely left-foot and range of passing. That will help West Ham build out from the back, something Moyes has missed without natural left-footed centre-back Angelo Ogbonna for most of the season.

West Ham’s 6ft 2in target is a starter for Morocco with 19 caps. He is also a threat from set pieces – something that would have been key for Moyes too.

The YouTube scouting video highlights Aguerd’s strengths as ‘tackling, passing, agility, aerial duels, determination, positioning, concentration and composure’.

But perhaps most excitingly under weaknesses it states: “no significant weaknesses”.

West Ham have been linked with Aguerd for some time now so this is no flash in the pan.

Let’s hope Moyes can get the deal done nice and early as a statement of intent.
