The season is over and could not be worse for Liverpool. The Reds and the 2022/2023 campaign without winning any trophy, were also unable to finish in the top-4 of the Premier League for the first time since 2016. The team needs a serious refreshing on the defensive end, so Klopp and executives have already set the transfer plan in motion.
West Ham’s defender and World Cup semi-finalist with the Moroccan national team, Nayef Aguerd is heavily linked with a move to Merseyside in maybe the first action of the newly appointed sporting director, Jorg Schmadtke, who has already set himself in the service of the club.
Aguerd became a West Ham player just a year ago, after a couple of seasons in Rennes and Ligue 1. He faced injuries that didn’t help him reach his full potential in London, but everyone saw his value in the Premier League, but also in Qatar last winter.
The Reds need serious reinforcement after a poor last summer, which saw choices such as the panicking move of the permanently injured Arthur Melo entering the club. Bolstering the midfield is the top priority but the fans know that it must be given emphasis on defence too, with the many ups and downs of Joe Gomez and Joel Matip. Virgil Van Dijk had a tough season at the back while we saw Alexander-Arnold in his new role as a playmaker.
As a natural left-footer he can fit perfectly into Klopp’s system, helping Van Dijk in many aspects of his game. West Ham may have had a troubled Premier League campaign, facing the danger of relegation for almost the entire season, but Aguerd was standing strong, helping the Hammers to avoid this unfortunate scenario. West Ham will compete in the Europa Conference final against Fiorentina next Wednesday in a chance to lift a European trophy.
A price of less than 40 million pounds can persuade West Ham to sell the 27-year-old defender who will be in favour of a transfer to Liverpool than to Tottenham, which is also interested in his services. The ball is on Klopp’s side to prove that Liverpool can be better next season.
