Sevilla are apparently regretting the fact that they did not sell Youssef En-Nesyri to West Ham in the summer transfer window.
That’s according to claims coming out of Spain, and translated via Sport Witness.
READ…£20 million West Ham man has been so poor this season, Moyes is making things worse
The Hammers apparently lodged a €40 million (£34.3 million) bid for the 25-year-old striker in the summer – one that was rejected by Sevilla (Fichajes).
David Moyes ended up bringing Gianluca Scamacca to the London Stadium instead for around £30 million plus add-ons, and we’re more than happy with that business.
Judging by En-Nesyri’s form over the past year or so, we have dodged a big bullet…
Sevilla regret not selling Youssef En-Nesyri to West Ham
Reports emanating from Spain, and covered via Sport Witness, claim that Sevilla now wish they had sold the Moroccan to the Hammers.
And it’s a little wonder as to why.
En-Nesyri has scored just five goals in his last 33 games for the La Liga side (Transfermarkt). In fact, he’s bagged just two goals since September last year!
And he is goalless in five games so far this season.
We have to say, we really weren’t impressed with the Moroccan one little bit when we faced Sevilla over two legs in the Europa League last season.
Who knows? Perhaps En-Nesyri will get back to his best at some point throughout the season.
At things stand though, the outlook appears to be bleak for him at The Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán Stadium.
It seems as though West Ham dodged a bullet by not signing Youssef En-Nesyri in the summer transfer window.
And Sevilla are apparently now kicking themselves.
