David Moyes is still looking to improve at centre back, and although the 27-year-old hasn’t exactly struggled at the London Stadium, his inconsistent play may indicate that a better player might be found for the same amount of money.
The Irons would have to make sure, though, that they aren’t taking on more work in the transfer market than they can handle, as an addition is already planned due to Kurt Zouma’s knees and Thilo Kehrer’s definite departure to Monaco.
On September 6, Fabrizio Romano reported that Aguerd was “very happy” at the club, despite rumours of his departure from the club during the summer transfer window.
At that point, the Moroccan’s devotion was evident to Moyes and his staff, as he went on to start 16 of 20 Premier League games and 4 of 6 in the Europa League.
However, his time in East London may be limited if transfer rumours persist and the team thinks they can find a better replacement with a sizable profit from selling him.
