West Ham fear Newcastle will hijack Nayef Aguerd’s last-minute transfer with the Rennes defender set on Hammers medical

NEWCASTLE have reportedly made a late nosedive for West Ham target Nayef Aguerd ahead of the defender’s scheduled medical treatment at the London Stadium.

SunSport revealed last month how the Hammers got closer to signing the Rennes centre-back in a deal worth up to £30million.

The Moroccan international is understood to have flown to the English capital this week to undergo a medical.

David Moyes was keen to bring the 26-year-old to the club last year but the Ligue 1 side refused to part with him.

And according to the Daily Star, the East London team could again miss the player’s signature.

They say West Ham fear the Magpies could hijack their move to sign Aguerd.

That’s because the toon made a last-ditch effort to persuade him to move to St James’ Park instead.

And that is said to have prompted Aguerd to consider his options as he debates who to join.

It could be a double whammy for West Ham as Newcastle are also looking to secure the services of Paris Saint-Germain goalkeeper Alphonse Areola under their nose.

Areola spent the 2021/22 season on loan at the Hammers, where he appeared in 18 games in all competitions, although he only made one appearance in the Premier League.

Nonetheless, West Ham are keen to turn their temporary stay into a permanent one after they left impressed by him.

However, RMC Sport now claim Newcastle entered the fray to sign him.

Although a deal could prove difficult as West Ham appear in pole position to sign Areola given the option they have to buy him for a reported £11million.

But with Newcastle’s increased financial strength following the Saudi-backed £300million takeover, they could be able to offer the player and PSG more money.
