Exclusive: La Liga expert talks up striker amid West Ham links -West Ham Transfer Rumours

La Liga expert Euan McTear believes that Sevilla striker Youssef En-Nesyri may well fit in nicely at West Ham United if he makes a move to the club this summer.

The Hammers have been linked with a potential swoop for the forward, for the second transfer window in a row.

Manager David Moyes was said to be willing to table a bid in the January transfer window following the exit of Sebastien Haller to Ajax, but that move did not come to fruition.

Would £40m for En-Nesyri be a good deal?





It seems as though that could be revisited this summer, though, with the Hammers again looking for depth in attack behind Michail Antonio.

McTear thinks that the Morocco international would be able to slot into Moyes’ tactical set-up, because of how flexible the Scot can be in terms of his systems.

Last season, En-Nesyri scored 24 goals in all competitions but he did not provide a single assist, and has netted 30 times in 78 appearances in total for Sevilla.

Speaking exclusively to The Transfer Tavern, he said: “It’s hard to know, David Moyes and Julen Lopetegui are so different. Lopetegui is very much, that Sevilla just have the ball, very, very possession orientated, sometimes it’s a bit slow. Maybe that’s sometimes why En-Nesyri leaves the box because the ball stays in midfield too long and it takes a while to get up there.

“But don’t rule out David Moyes, I think last season surprised us all in terms of how versatile he showed he can still be, and how he managed to fit some of those players in at West Ham, so yeah, maybe he sees something in En-Nesyri that he can use..But if he thinks he’s going to be a striker who scores some and creates some for the other players up front, Antonio and the like, I don’t know about that because I don’t think En-Nesyri had a single assist this season and it’s not like he created many chances either.”
