A West Ham delegation jetted out on 2,500 mile round trip for a marina restaurant talks with star Youssef En-Nesyri over a move.

Youssef En-Nesyri came back onto West Ham’s radar this week as attentions turn to bringing a new striker to the club.

Last month Hammers News reported on claims that West Ham want to make it third time lucky in their attempts to sign En-Nesyri in this summer transfer window having been snubbed twice in recent seasons.

Transfer reporter Dharmesh Sheth confirmed West Ham made an approach to Sevilla over the Morocco striker yesterday.

And things appears to be moving quickly for the Hammers on this one if claims being made overnight and this morning are to be believed.

West Ham delegation jet out on 2,500 mile round trip for marina restaurant talks with star Youssef En-Nesyri over move

A West Ham delegation jetted out on 2,500 mile round trip for a marina restaurant talks with star En-Nesyri over a move last night.

That’s according to unverified reports in France emerging yesterday evening.

It has been claimed by a source in France that West Ham representatives flew to meet with En-Nesyri in Rabat.

And that the star has agreed in principal to join West Ham should they strike a deal with Sevilla – whose players have the day off from training today, according to claims.

It is also claimed En-Nesyri was easy to spot as he is now sporting blonde hair.

‘Agreement on five-year contract. West Ham must now reach an agreement with Sevilla’

“Youssef En nesyri is currently in Rabat, Morocco in a restaurant not far from the Marina with people from West Ham,” it was claimed overnight.

“The place is sealed off impossible to access and he is accompanied by his agents. They are working on a contractual agreement!

“En-Nesyri contractual agreement with West Ham. Five-year contract.

“West Ham must now reach an agreement with Sevilla.”

There’s never a dull moment with West Ham.

This sounds like something from a movie. West Ham will hope it is one with a happy ending.

En-Nesyri, 26, is one of the quickest and most deadly aerial threats in La Liga.

He seems to have all the attributes needed to be a success under David Moyes at West Ham.

You only have to watch his goal against Man City for Sevilla in the recent Super Cup to see why Moyes has chased him for the last two years.

With James Ward-Prowse on set-pieces, En-Nesyri could finally be the answer for the Hammers up front and the heir to Michail Antonio.

Let’s hope the claims are true and West Ham can come to an agreement with cash-strapped Sevilla for the forward.
