ExWHUemployee claimed that West Ham will 100 per cent bid for Sevilla striker Youssef En-Nesyri in the summer, when speaking on the West Ham Way podcast last night (Wednesday, February 10th).
Hammers boss David Moyes decided against bringing a new striker to the London Stadium in January.
Whether it was actually his choice or not is debatable. But either way, it was clearly the wrong decision.
If reports in January are to be believed, West Ham were desperately trying to sign Sevilla hitman Youssef En-Nesyri.
The Athletic claims that the Hammers made a bid of around £27 million for the Morocco international.
Sevilla rejected that offer, however, and the 23-year-old remained with the La Liga outfit.
West Ham to make summer bid for Youssef En-Nesyri?
ExWHUemployee suggested that the Hammers are certain to go back in for the Sevilla ace in the summer, when speaking on the West Ham Way podcast last night (Wednesday, February 10th):
“There are players I know for a fact we are interested in. 100 per cent we are going to look at bringing in En-Nesyri who plays for Sevilla. We bid for him in the winter and we’ll probably bid for him again in the summer.”
En-Nesyri would be a superb addition for West Ham.
The striker has racked up 13 goals in 21 La Liga games for Sevilla so far this term (Transfermarkt). And he is currently the joint second top scorer alongside Barcelona legend Lionel Messi.
There is one huge problem for the Hammers, however.
The Guardian claims that Sevilla want around £40 million for the 23-year-old.
And whether the West Ham owners will be prepared to part with that kind of cash for En-Nesyri remains to be seen.
