‘Cash In!!!!’ ‘Would Be Fine To Se Both Go’ Fans React To Claims That West Ham Pair Could Leave For Saudi

West Ham centre-back pairing Nayef Aguerd and Kurt Zouma are attracting interest from Saudi Pro League clubs, according to HITC Football.

Neither player has impressed this season, with the Hammers having conceded 50 goals in 29 league games.

If the club do receive satisfactory offers for both Aguerd and Zouma this summer, the vast majority of fans on X agree that the pair should be sold:

Aguerd has struggled with consistency

West Ham paid a hefty £30m fee to bring the Moroccan international from Rennes at the start of last season.

However, despite some impressive performances, Aguerd has been liable to lapses in concentration. For many, his lack of consistency is not acceptable at the very highest level.

Injuries have caught up with the West Ham captain

Zouma‘s problems are slightly different to Aguerd’s. The defender was a man mountain when he first arrived from Chelsea in 2021 but he has been carrying a knee injury for quite some time.

The issue has rid him of his pace, and that lack of recovery speed means he relies too much on those around him to get him out of trouble.

If the Irons can raise a good amount of money from their departures, it could then be invested in replacing them with more reliable players.
