West Ham United have been dealt a huge blow with Youssef En-Nesyri suggesting that he struggled with the English weather during a trial with Chelsea earlier on in his career, when speaking to Sevilla ABC.
Hammers boss David Moyes will clearly be keen to bolster his centre-forward ranks at the London Stadium this summer.
Sevilla hitman Youssef En-Nesyri would be the absolute perfect summer addition for West Ham.
The Morocco international has scored 23 goals in 46 games so far this term (Who Scored).
En-Nesyri 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.
And the 23-year-old is a prime target for the Hammers (La Razon).
La Razon claims West Ham could be willing to spend £40 million on En-Nesyri this summer.
West Ham dealt big Youssef En-Nesyri blow
The 23-year-old may well not fancy a move to England this summer.
En-Nesyri was speaking to Sevilla ABC and admitted that he struggled during a trial period with Chelsea earlier on in his career:
“I went to Chelsea and stayed there for three weeks. It was very cold, and I went back to Morocco; I couldn’t take it anymore. I went back to the Mohammed VI Academy, and we played some games against Sevilla, Málaga and Almería. That’s when Malaga saw me, and they decided to sign me.”
Now that En-Nesyri has matured, he may well have a different outlook on moving to England and specifically the Premier League.
The Moroccan’s comments definitely don’t bode well for West Ham, however.
The Hammers may well struggle to afford there Sevilla ace anyway. If West Ham do manage to meet Sevilla’s demands, however, we may well be faced with another problem.
Convincing En-Nesyri to move to England from Spain could be more challenging that first anticipated.
