West Ham are plotting a huge January transfer coup according to reports emanating from Spain.
Hammers boss David Moyes desperately needs to bolster his centre-forward ranks in January.
Bringing in more competition and cover for Michail Antonio is now a matter of urgency.
The fact that we still haven’t replaced Sebastien Haller isn’t acceptable really. If that is because Moyes genuinely doesn’t want to settle for anything less than the best though, then we can accept it.
And it seems as though that is exactly the reason why the Scot still hasn’t signed a striker.
West Ham plotting very exciting January transfer
Spanish media outlet Fichajes reckons that the Hammers will make a move to sign Sevilla hitman Youssef En-Nesyri in January.
Estadio Deportivo recently suggested that the 24-year-old hitman could be available for around £42 million.
That seems like a lot of money for a striker who is unproven in the Premier League. We believe that En-Nesyri is more than worth that kind of fee though.
And with Daniel Kretinsky now on the board having recently invested huge amounts of money into the club, making a £42 million January signing now seems like a realistic prospect.
En-Nesyri would be the ideal January addition to Moyes’s squad at the London Stadium. He has been described as a ‘brilliant striker’ by well-renowned football website Sport Mob.
The 24-year-old 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.
The Morocco international scored 23 goals in 46 games last term for Sevilla (Who Scored). And he has three in seven to his name this season.
En-Nesyri is the classic all-round front-man. He’s David Moyes’s dream player.
And if West Ham manage to get this one done in January, we will undoubtedly have a great chance of cracking the top four this season.
