It is an open secret that West Ham need to sign a striker.
According to the football transfer rumours in British media, West Ham are willing to make 36 million euros offer for Youssef En-Nesyri.
The Morocco international only joined Sevilla from Leganés in 2020 for 20 million euros and his contract runs to June 2025.
The striker has banged in 13 goals in 26 matches for Sevilla this term on all fronts.
The 23-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 West Ham.
David Moyes wants to sign a new striker and Youssef En-Nesyri is one of the names at the top of his wishlist.
The report claims that West Ham manager has extensively scouted En-Nesyri and is considering a move for the striker.
The Hammers are in the market for just a handful of statement signings who can improve the first-team.
There is no doubt that Youssef En-Nesyri will take West Ham’s attack to a different level.
According to the report,”West Ham United are being linked with a move for Youssef En-Nesyri from Sevilla. The Hammers are ready to offer a total package of £32 million, having seen a previous bid rebuffed. However, the Daily Star claims Sevilla may reject this offer as well, as they want more of the fee to include guaranteed payments. Sevilla are in fourth place in La Liga at the moment, and in the Champions League round of 16. There are some at the club who want to keep the player to improve their chances of success this term, but the money men may want to cash in while his value is high.”

It would take a huge offer from West Ham to prise the 23-year-old striker from Sevilla.
Youssef En-Nesyri ideal fit for West Ham?
It is smart from the club to invest in younger players, rather than splashing out big money on experienced players with no resale value.
A striker of 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.
If he turns out to be a star like many expect, it could be one of the club’s smartest transfers.
It will be interesting to see if West Ham make their move for the 23-year-old in the coming days.
