Report: West Ham can seal cut-price £13m deal for Youssef En-Nesyri after rejected £34m bid last year

West Ham United allegedly could sign Sevilla striker Youssef En-Nesyri for a cut-price deal in the January transfer window.

That’s according to a report from Vamos Mi Sevilla who claim that Sevilla have really messed up by not selling the 25-year-old striker either in the summer or last January.

It is alleged by Vamos Mi Sevilla that Sevilla could have got around €40 million (£34 million) from West Ham for En-Nesyri but the Hammers could now snap him up for just €15 million (£13 million).

David Moyes ended his long search for a new striker in the summer by signing Gianluca Scamacca from Sassuolo for around £35 million.

It could be argued that the Scot needs to add another centre-forward to his ranks at the London Stadium though.

And it seems as though he could do exactly that for a real bargain fee…

West Ham eyeing cut-price Youssef En-Nesyri deal

Vamos Mi Sevilla claim that the Hammers could pick the 25-year-old striker up for just £13 million.

It has already been claimed that the Moroccan hitman is keen to join West Ham this winter.

And now it seems like that could be a very real possibility.

I must say though, I would be fairly underwhelmed if Moyes signs the Moroccan.

En-Nesyri has scored just four goals in his last 33 games for the La Liga side (Transfermarkt). In fact, he’s bagged just four goals since September 2021!

I have to say, I really wasn’t impressed with the Moroccan one little bit when we faced Sevilla over two legs in the Europa League last season.

Who knows? Perhaps En-Nesyri will get back to his best at some point throughout the season.

At things stand though, the outlook appears to be bleak for him at The Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán Stadium.

He certainly doesn’t seem to be anywhere near the levels he was at a couple of years ago.

It seems as though West Ham dodged a bullet by not signing Youssef En-Nesyri in the summer transfer window.

Having said that, if Moyes can pick him up for a bargain £13 million fee in January, he might just be worth the punt for the Hammers.

Much will depend on how he performs with Morocco in the World Cup out in Qatar.
