Report: Sevilla expect to lose Youssef En-Nesyri to West Ham in the summer

According to a report from La Razon, Sevilla are expecting West Ham to complete the signing of Youssef En-Nesyri in the summer.

And in a quirky and ironic twist, the La Liga side have allegedly identified David Moyes target Mariano Diaz as the Morocco international’s replacement.

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.

David Moyes decided not to bring a new striker to the London Stadium in the end. That decision seemed baffling at the time and now it just seems plain crazy.

West Ham to complete Youssef En-Nesyri signing?

It is what it is. Moyes will have to address his centre-forward issues in the summer.

La Razon claims that West Ham will move again for En-Nesyri. In fact, the Spanish publication claimed that Sevilla are almost resigned to losing the 23-year-old to the Hammers.

En-Nesyri would be a superb addition for the Hammers.

The Morocco international has been in superb form for Sevilla this season. He has scored 17 goals in 33 games thus far (Transfermarkt). The 23-year-old is lively, quick and has great mobility and movement.

At 23, En-Nesyri is at the ideal age to make the jump up to the Premier League.

Whether the West Ham board will be prepared to part with £35 million in the summer to secure the Morocco international’s services, however, remains to be seen.
