West Ham United will have to pay £40 million if we want to bring Sevilla striker Youssef En-Nesyri in the summer.

That’s according to a report from Planet Sport who claims that David Moyes is keen to sign the 24-year-old hitman before the start of next season.

The Hammers desperately need to sign a new striker in the summer.

Moyes tried and failed to do that in the January transfer window and as a result, we will have to make do with Michail Antonio as our only option through the middle between now and the end of the season.

Moyes absolutely has to address that in the summer. And it seems as though he has a plan up his sleeve…

West Ham eyeing Sevilla ace En-Nesyri

Planet Sport claims that the Hammers can bring the 24-year-old striker to the London Stadium this summer but only for a minimum of £40 million.

We think that the Moroccan would be an exceptional addition for West Ham.

He has been described as a ‘brilliant striker’ by well-renowned football website Sport Mob.

The 24-year-old bagged 24 goals in 53 games for Sevilla last season. This term, he’s racked up three goals and three assists in 13 games (Transfermarkt).

En-Nesyri has everything that David Moyes looks for in a striker. He is lively, quick and has great mobility and movement. The Sevilla ace is pretty good in the air as well. In short, he is a complete striker.

£40 million is obviously a lot of money for West Ham to lay out on one player.

If we want to make genuine progress and keep up with the big boys though, that’s the kind of money we need to be spending. Especially on a marquee striker signing.

West Ham manager Moyes absolutely has to get his transfer business 100% spot on this summer. We have a genuine chance to make a big splash in the Premier League and in Europe next season.

And the addition of a couple of top-class signings will be absolutely vital to our hopes of achieving any kind of real success.

Spending £40 million on En-Nesyri would certainly be a big statement from the Hammers.

En-Nesyri would certainly be worth it. Whether the West Ham owners are prepared to back Moyes to the hilt in the January transfer window though, remains to be seen.
