West Ham United have allegedly been offered the chance to sign Sevilla’s Moroccan centre-forward Youssef En-Nesyri.
That’s according to a report from club insiders Claret and Hugh who claim that talk of the Hammers moving in for the 25-year-old hitman this summer ‘could have some legs’.
West Ham manager David Moyes desperately needs to bring a top-class striker to the London Stadium before the start of next season.
Michail Antonio has been our only centre-forward for 18 months now and that quite simply isn’t good enough for a club with supposed ambitions of challenging for honours both domestically and on the continent.
Marca claimed yesterday that Sevilla have offered En-Nesyri to the Hammers. And that claim has now been backed up by one of the club’s most high-level insiders…
West Ham offered Youssef En-Nesyri
Claret and Hugh reckon that talk of the Morocco international moving to the London Stadium this summer could very well have some legs.
En-Nesyri has struggled over the past six months or so. He’s still a top-class striker though.
And despite those struggles last season, we still believe that the Sevilla forward could have a lot to offer this West Ham team.
The 25-year-old runs the channels and seems to be ideally suited to the way in which the Hammers play.
And the Moroccan proved during the 2020/21 campaign that he is more than capable of scoring goals on a consistent basis.
The Sevilla hitman would undoubtedly provide strong competition for Antonio. He has been described as an ‘amazing’ talent by football website The Sports Wave.
And it is believed that he could be available for just €25 million (£21 million) this summer according to claims from Spanish publication Marca.
If West Ham do sign Youssef En-Nesyri for that kind of money in the summer transfer window, it might just end up being god business for the East London club.
Whether Moyes is entirely convinced on En-Nesyri remains to be seen though.
