It really is now or never for the Hammers.
David Moyes has been tracking the 24-year-old hitman since January.
The Athletic claimed towards the end of January that West Ham made a £27 million bid for the Morocco international – one that was swiftly rejected by Sevilla.
And as recently as April, it was claimed that the Hammers actually submitted an offer for En-Nesyri ahead of the summer transfer window (Il Milanista).
West Ham must move now in order to finally land En-Nesyri
Wolves are allegedly ready to pay €40 million (£35 million) to bring the 24-year-old Sevilla ace to Molineux this summer, according to a report from AS.
En-Nesyri was in top form last season. He’s absolutely perfect for David Moyes and the way that the Scot likes his team to operate.
He is lively, quick and has great mobility and movement. The Sevilla ace is pretty good in the air as well. In short, he is a complete striker.
The Moroccan is a good finisher too. He scored 24 goals in 46 La Liga and Champions League games last season (Who Scored).
He has been described as an ‘amazing’ talent by football website The Sports Wave.
£35 million actually seems like decent business to us. And West Ham should not be allowing Wolves to have a free run at the Moroccan.
We are in a far stronger position with European football on offer. En-Nesyri does have Champions League football on the horizon at Sevilla of course. But you cannot underestimate the lure of the Premier League and living in London in particular.

The least we can do is try. And now may well be our final chance to land En-Nesyri’s signature with Wolves set to up the ante.
