West Brom Opinion – Why West Brom should keep hold of Ahmed Hegazi amidst interest

According to a report in Birmingham Mail, Real Madrid, Stoke City and Fenerbahce are interested in signing West Brom centre-back Ahmed Hegazi.

The Egyptian has been a key player at the back for the Baggies this season, as they seek to get back to the Premier League a year after they got relegated into the Championship.

His form has attracted the attention of quite a few clubs, with the above-mentioned ones keeping a close eye on the defender. Much will depend on whether Darren Moore’s West Brom get promoted to top-flight this summer or not. (h/t Birmingham Mail)

However be the case, here’s why the Baggies must do everything and keep hold of Ahmed Hegazi beyond the end of this season:

The Egyptian is a vital player in the team

West Brom have had a decent season back in the Championship under Darren Moore. They are in the running to feature in the play-off games at the end of this season.

They have been generally erratic at the back and goal-scoring prowess has got up to this position as we enter the business end of the campaign.

However, despite their leakiness at the back, Ahmed Hegazi has been their best centre-back. The Egyptian is a sure-footed player, who commands the aerial balls and also has the sense of making interceptions and tackles at the right time.

His passing out from the back is pretty decent as well, which helps the manager to make them play in a certain style. All in all, the 28-year-old is a vital player for West Brom and they could with him for the upcoming seasons.

He has a contract until 2022, hence, the Baggies have no qualms over having to offer him a new deal in order to ward off interests from other clubs.
