West Ham have been priced out of a move to sign Sevilla striker Youssef En-Nesyri according to ExWHUemployee.

The Hammers’ need for a new centre-forward has been well-documented already.

David Moyes is searching far and wide for a top class forward to provide strong competition and cover for Michail Antonio.

Youssef En-Nesyri is a name who has been persistently linked with a move to the London Stadium over the past few months.

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 the 24-year-old ahead of the summer transfer window (Il Milanista).

It seems as though we can forget about the Sevilla ace rocking up in East London this summer, however.


West Ham move to sign En-Nesyri ruled out by ExWHUemployee

The Moroccan will be too expensive for the Hammers this summer apparently.

Ex suggested that West Ham have been priced out of a move to sign the 24-year-old, when speaking on the West Ham Way podcast:

“En-Nesyri of Sevilla, I think they’ll price him out of joining us. And he isn’t keen on moving to England.”

The Sevilla hitman is allegedly available for around £35 million this summer according to AS.

So it is no surprise that the Hammers are choosing not to pursue a move for him, considering his lack of experience in the Premier League.

Splashing that kind of cash out on En-Nesyri would have been a huge risk.
