Report makes exciting claim about West Ham United's Youssef En-Nesyri plan

According to a report from the Evening Standard, West Ham United are ready to make a move once again for Sevilla striker Youssef En-Nesyri.

Hammers boss David Moyes will be desperate to bolster his centre-forward department at the London Stadium this summer.

After selling Sebastien Haller to Ajax in January, West Ham were left with Michail Antonio as their only recognised centre-forward.

The 31-year-old is predictably now out injured with a hamstring problem.


Hopefully we manage to muddle through between now and May.

Whatever happens between now and the end of the season though, Moyes absolutely must strengthen his options up front in the summer.

West Ham ready to make another move for Sevilla striker Youssef En-Nesyri

The Athletic claimed towards the end of the January transfer window that the Hammers made a £27 million bid for the Morocco international – one that was swiftly rejected by Sevilla.

And now The Evening Standard claims that West Ham are ready to make another move for the exciting 23-year-old forward.

En-Nesyri has been in fine form this season. He has scored 21 goals in 40 games so far this term (Who Scored).

The Moroccan 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. And he has everything David Moyes looks for in a centre-forward.

There is one big problem for West Ham, however.

Sevilla could demand as much as £40 million for En-Nesyri according to the Guardian.

Whether the Hammers owners will be prepared to pay that much for the striker remains to be seen.

He is absolutely perfect for West Ham, however, that’s for sure.
