According to Il Milanista, West Ham United have tabled an offer of €35m (£30.3m) for Sevilla striker Youssef En-Nesyri.
Hammers make En-Nesyri approach
As it stands, David Moyes only has one recognised striker at his disposal in Michail Antonio. While that has not damaged their season so far – they are currently fourth in the Premier League table with 13 games to go (Sky Sports) – it could be an issue in the long-term.
As such, they are said to be eyeing En-Nesyri, and are believed to have tabled a significant offer for the 23-year-old. AC Milan are also in pursuit.
The Hammers have a real chance of qualifying for European football this season – even if they do not make the Champions League, the Europa League would be a boost for Moyes’ men. If they do make it into either competition, they will need a stronger squad with more depth and quality.
With 17 goals in all competitions so far this campaign for Sevilla (Transfermarkt), including four in the Champions League, En-Nesyri clearly has quality. He is young, too, which would be another bonus for the Irons. He has 43 goals throughout his career, with this term clearly his best to date and he looks to be a player that is continually improving.
Would you like to sign En-Nesyri?
Taking all that into account, West Ham’s reported bid, if successful, could be something of a bargain.
In other news, West Ham fans praised this man against Tottenham.
