The attacking department of the West Ham squad needs quality additions this winter.
It’s claimed by British media that West Ham are linked with fresh move for Youssef En-Nesyri.
The 25-year-old has been subject to interest from various European clubs.
Youssef En-Nesyri has been at Sevilla since 2020 when he joined from Leganés. The 25-year-old’s contract is set to expire at the end of the 2024/25 campaign.
The striker banged in five goals in 18 matches for Sevilla this season across all fronts showcasing just how influential he has been in the final third.
The 25-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 17 goals in 57 senior appearances for the Morocco national team.
His performances have seen him become the target of many European clubs including West Ham United.
David Moyes is eager to add a striker to the squad. He wants an experienced player that can be a leader on and off the pitch for him. Moyes is a known admirer of the player and is reportedly keen on the idea of bringing him this winter.
The former Leganés man provides a unique blend between a classic center-forward and the modern striker. His finishing abilities when in and around the box will come as a massive asset to David Moyes’ side.
According to the report, “West ham United are eyeing Sevilla striker Youssef En-Nesyri. The Athletic says the Hammers are lining up a January move for the Morocco World Cup star. En-Nesyri is ready to leave Sevilla this month with the team under threat of relegation. West Ham hope to set up a loan arrangement with the option to buy in June. The Irons had a €30m offer for En-Nesyri last summer rejected by Sevilla last summer.”
Euro Football Rumours
West Ham United will have to present a really enticing offer to bring Sevilla to the negotiating table. The Hammers have the resources to tempt them but it will be interesting to see if they are willing to overpay for the player.
Sevilla will be ready to part ways with the striker should the right offer arrives.
Good signing for West Ham United?
If En-Nesyri is available for the right price, then he could be a clever acquisition for West Ham.
A striker of Youssef En-Nesyri’s ceiling will be a massive addition to West Ham squad as he will not only improve the overall quality of David Moyes’ starting XI but also add some stability and variety to his attacking department.
How strong that interest is and whether West Ham United will make a move remains to be seen but it is certainly one worth keeping an eye on.
