West Ham are still in for Sevilla ace Youssef En-Nesyri according to The Daily Star (June 20th, page 43) but we could face competition from Wolves for the striker.
Hammers boss David Moyes is desperately trying to bolster his centre-forward ranks at the London Stadium.
And it seems as though Wolves manager Bruno Lage is in the same boat at Molineux.
En-Nesyri would be an exceptional signing for either side. We think that the East London outfit should beat Wolves to his signature, however.
West Ham have big advantage over Wolves in race for En-Nesyri
The Daily Star (June 20th, page 43) claims that Bruno Lage wants to bring the Morocco international to Molineux.
The British tabloid suggests that the Hammers will move in to sign the £35 million striker, however, if there is any indication that Sevilla will be prepared to sell him.
And West Ham should have an edge over Wolves.
David Moyes led the Hammers to a sixth placed finish in the Premier League table last season and consequently, we have Europa League football on the agenda next term.
Now, En-Nesyri will surely be more keen on joining a club that can offer European football this summer.
Sevilla are set for Champions League football next season, so it will be hard to prise him away from the La Liga club.
But if he is to move, it will surely be to a club with some kind of European football on offer.
That’s why we think West Ham have a huge advantage over Wolves in the race to sign the prolific striker this summer.
