The Hammers have enjoyed an incredible campaign so far this season.

We are currently sitting pretty in fourth spot in the Premier League table, two points clear of fifth placed Chelsea.

It really is astonishing considering the fact that we don’t have one recognised senior striker at the club.

Michail Antonio is a converted winger and Mipo Odubeko is nowhere near ready to be playing regular first-team football.

David Moyes chose not to bring a striker to the London Stadium in January. We have got away with it so far but whatever happens this season, the Scot needs to sign at least one top class striker in the summer.

West Ham already laying the groundwork to sign Youssef En-Nesyri?

The Hammers have been linked with a move to sign the Sevilla hitman since January.

 

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

And now Il Milanista claims that the Hammers have actually already submitted an offer for the Morocco international ahead of the summer transfer window.

Sevilla are demanding €40 million (£35 million) for the Moroccan and have already lined up Real Madrid hitman Mariano Diaz as his replacement (La Razon).

En-Nesyri would be an absolutely incredible addition for West Ham.

The Morocco international has been in superb form for Sevilla this season. He has scored 17 goals in 34 games thus far (Transfermarkt). The 23-year-old is lively, quick and has great mobility and movement.

En-Nesyri is pretty good in the air as well. In short, he is a complete striker.

Let’s just hope that the Hammers owners are ready to back Moyes in the transfer market this summer.
