West Ham have no Nayef Aguerd agreement yet according to L'Equipe

West Ham United allegedly do not yet have an agreement with Rennes to sign Moroccan centre-back Nayef Aguerd.

That’s according to a report form French publication L’Equipe who claim that Rennes have assured them that no agreement is in place to take the 26-year-old defender to the London Stadium.

It is suggested that if the Hammers make an offer of €30 million (£25 million) though, it could be enough to tempt the Ligue 1 outfit into selling.

Signing a top-class centre-back is one of the main priorities for West Ham manager David Moyes in the summer transfer window.

The Evening Standard and The Daily Mail suggested on Monday that Aguerd’s move to West Ham is imminent.

It seems as though there is actually no agreement in place as yet, however…

No West Ham Aguerd agreement

L’Equipe insist that they have not yet reached an agreement with the Hammers about the transfer of Aguerd.

Firstly, GFFN claimed Rennes wanted around £17 million for Aguerd. Then, the likes of The Evening Standard suggested that the Hammers were close to agreeing a £13 million deal to sign the Moroccan.

And now, there have been fresh claims from both The Daily Mail and The Guardian claiming that West Ham have actually raised their offer to £25 million in order to push the deal to sign Aguerd through.

And that marries up with the latest report from L’Equipe claiming that that is the kind of fee needed to prise the Morocco international away from Rennes.

Whatever happens, the Hammers just need to get this one done asap.

West Ham might not have an agreement in place to sign Aguerd, but we would be very surprised if he isn’t a Hammers player in time for pre-season.

The 26-year-old is a top-class player and would be a superb addition for the East London outfit. Let’s just hope that the West Ham negotiators are not messing around with the deal behind the scenes.
