Arsenal could face competition from West Ham for Sevilla striker Youssef En-Nesyri in either January or next summer according to a report from La Colina de Nervion.

Gunners boss Mikel Arteta allegedly views the 24-year-old as the perfect long-term replacement for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. Meanwhile, Hammers manager David Moyes has been chasing the Moroccan for around nine months (La Razon).

West Ham will have to fight off Arsenal if they are to win the race for En-Nesyri’s signature. We think there is every chance we could do just that, however.

The Sevilla ace is a top-class centre-forward. He could be available for around £30 million according to Goal.


That seems like decent value for En-Nesyri.

Will he be plying his trade at the London Stadium or the Emirates any time soon, however?

West Ham face Arsenal competition for En-Nesyri

La Colina de Nervion reckon that the Gunners are eyeing a swoop for the Morocco international in January or next summer.

The Hammers allegedly want him as well.

And as mad as this sounds, it could be argued that West Ham are a more attractive prospect than Arsenal at the moment.

Oh how the mighty have fallen.

En-Nesyri would be a great signing for the Hammers. He has been described as a ‘brilliant striker’ by well-renowned football website Sport Mob.

The 24-year-old is lively, quick and has great mobility and movement. He is pretty good in the air as well. In short, he is a complete striker.

The Morocco international scored 23 goals in 46 games last term for Sevilla (Who Scored). And he has two in three to his name this season.

Here’s a glimpse of what En-Nesyri is capable of:

We think West Ham have a great chance of signing En-Nesyri. And if we continue to produce the goods between now and January, there is a strong possibility that the Moroccan will prefer to join us rather than Arsenal.
