Hammers boss David Moyes desperately needs to sign a new striker in the summer.

Sevilla hitman Youssef En-Nesyri has been persistently linked with a move to the London Stadium.

The Athletic claimed towards the end of January that the Hammers made a £27 million bid for the 23-year-old – one that was swiftly rejected by Sevilla.

And as recently as a couple of weeks ago, it was claimed that West Ham have actually already submitted an offer for the Moroccan ahead of the summer transfer window (Il Milanista).

West Ham to go back in for Youssef En-Nesyri?

Nothing has really been mentioned since, until now.

Calcio Mercato claims that David Moyes is expected to go back in for En-Nesyri at the end of the season and let’s hope that turns out to be the case.

The Morocco international would be an outstanding addition for West Ham.

The 23-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.

En-Nesyri has scored 21 goals in 39 games so far this term (Who Scored).

The Morocco international could be available for around £40 million this summer (The Guardian). He earns roughly £50k-a-week (Salary Sport).

If the West Ham owners have genuine ambition, there is no reason why they shouldn’t bring En-Nesyri to East London from Seville this summer.

Whether David Sullivan and David Gold have the genuine desire to sign the 23-year-old striker, however, remains to be seen.
