Fabrizio Romano eases West Ham fans fear as the 27-year-old key star is set to remain at the club this season

Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano has delivered reassuring news for West Ham United fans, indicating that defender Nayef Aguerd is unlikely to leave the club this summer, writes the TBR. Romano’s update, shared on social media, will undoubtedly bring relief to supporters at the London Stadium.

Despite ongoing interest from Saudi Arabia in some members of David Moyes’s squad, Pablo Fornals is the player currently with an offer on the table that could potentially lead to his departure from the club. Fornals has been a consistent presence in every Premier League match this season, making him a valuable asset for both domestic and European competitions.

However, Nayef Aguerd’s importance to West Ham’s side cannot be overstated. Having already opened his goal-scoring account with a memorable strike against Chelsea, Aguerd has proven his worth. Despite a brief setback with a red card, he promptly returned to the team, contributing to their victory over Luton Town. Throughout the summer, Aguerd has been linked with various clubs, including Tottenham, Napoli, and now, Saudi Arabia.

Fabrizio Romano’s recent statement offers a glimmer of hope to West Ham supporters. According to the journalist, Aguerd appears content at West Ham, and the club shares that sentiment. West Ham has reportedly turned down several offers for the defender this summer, emphasizing his status as a top-tier center-back.

While West Ham has strengthened its central defense by signing Konstantinos Mavropanos from Stuttgart, it appears that the Greek international is intended to provide competition rather than replace Aguerd or Kurt Zouma.

West Ham has enjoyed an exceptional start to the season, highlighted by a notable 3-1 victory over Chelsea and an away win against Brighton with the same scoreline. If West Ham aims to secure European qualification, Aguerd is poised to play a pivotal role. Fabrizio Romano’s update provides reassurance for the club and its fans as they look forward to a promising campaign.
