The striker’s representative Valdi osuggested that Hammers boss David Moyes wanted to bring his client to the London Stadium, when speaking during an interview with ABC:

“Monchi valued him at ten million euros at the beginning of the market, and in the last few days, he would have considered loaning him out with an option to buy. He has had many offers and interest from many teams. In England, both Crystal Palace and West Ham showed a lot of interest until the last day of the market. Munir didn’t want to leave Sevilla or La Liga. In Spain, the offers he has received have not been to his liking.”

£8.5 million for Munir sounds like decent value. Whether he would have succeeded in the Premier League is another matter entirely, however.

The Morocco international may well be wishing that he hadn’t rejected a move to join West Ham now.

The 26-year-old striker is still yet to play a single minute for Sevilla so far this season.

Sevilla manager Julen Lopetegui has preferred Youssef En-Nesyri through the middle flanked by Suso and Papa Gomez so far this season.

Munir probably thought that he would feature regularly for the La Liga outfit this season when he turned down a move to the London Stadium.

Unless things change very quickly, the Moroccan may be looking for an exit from Seville in January.

Munir at his best:
