Arsenal express interest in Sevilla striker Youssef En-Nesyri

The upcoming winter will see Arsenal improving their attacking department.

The reports in England suggested that Arsenal have expressed interest in Sevilla striker Youssef En-Nesyri.

The striker has featured in three matches for Sevilla this term, netting two goals and providing one assist in all competitions.

The 24-year-old is considered to be one of the best strikers in Morocco. En-Nesyri has also left his mark at the international stage after netting 11 goals in 35 senior appearances for the Morocco national team.

His performances have seen him become the target of many European clubs including Arsenal.

Adding a striker remains Arsenal’s top priority this winter and Mikel Arteta will have drafted a shortlist of a number of possible targets he could approach in the coming months.

Arteta has always been a manager who keeps his eyes on the most talented players across the globe.


The Gunners will have funds to spend in the market and it will be interesting to see how they approach the winter transfer window.

There is no doubt that En-Nesyri will take Arsenal’s attack to a different level.

According to the report, “Arsenal have identified a potential replace for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. The 32-year-old’s future in north London is in doubt after scoring just 10 league goals last season. The Gunners are now planning for life after Aubameyang, who still has two years left on his contract. According to La Colina de Nervion, Mikel Arteta is hoping to sign Sevilla striker Youssef En-Nesyri in January. Signed from Leganes in January 2020, En-Nesyri ended last season with 24 goals in all competitions.”


Sevilla appear to be adamant that no key players will be sold this winter, but Arsenal are reportedly ready to tempt them with a massive offer for En-Nesyri.

Youssef En-Nesyri ideal fit for Arsenal?

Signing the 24-year-old in the winter transfer window would be a masterstroke from Arteta.

Stylistically, he would be a great fit in London.

Arsenal fans would certainly love to see him arrive at the club.

How strong that interest is and whether Arsenal will make a move remains to be seen but it is certainly one worth keeping an eye on.
