West Ham United boss David Moyes is personally weighing a summer bid for Sevilla striker Youssef En-Nesyri as his club make a major decision, according to reports.
The Lowdown: Moyes eyes striker move…
This summer could finally be the time West Ham end their long, drawn out search for a striking back-up to Michail Antonio.
The sale of club-record signing Sebastien Haller to Ajax last year has left the Irons without an alternative to their Jamaica international forward and Moyes may need one if he is to keep pace with the Premier League‘s elite.
The Latest: West Ham weigh bid…
As per their information, Sevilla are now ‘ready to cash-in’ on their forward due a dip in form – which could be a result of injuries and COVID-19.
Which striker should West Ham sign?
West Ham boss Moyes, as a result, is said to be personally ‘weighing whether to go back in’ for En-Nesyri after seeing a £27 million bid rejected in January 2021.
The Verdict: Make the move?
Even though last season was one to forget for the Morocco international star, we believe he could potentially find his feet again in England at West Ham.
The 6 foot 2 forward bagged a brilliant 23 goals for Sevilla over 2020/2021, indicating quality is certainly there, with La Liga expert and journalist Guillem Balague calling him an ‘excellent’ player (Premier Sports).
His eye for goal and physicality perhaps suggests he could fit into Moyes’ system at the London Stadium and this may well be a move the club should consider making.
