According to an update by Sport, translated by Sport Witness, West Ham United target Youssef En-Nesyri is now ‘seduced‘ by the prospect of playing in east London – coming as a potentially big boost after manager David Moyes confirmed a bid to sign him (Evening Standard).
The move for the striker had looked in doubt, with journalist David Ornstein claiming Sevilla and the Irons couldn’t agree on terms (Twitter), but sections of the Spanish press have now offered entirely different updates.
Should West Ham sign En-Nesyri?
Absolutely, best candidate
No, far too expensive
En-Nesyri boost emerges for West Ham
Indeed, Sport now claim that En-Nesyri is ‘seduced’ by the idea of joining West Ham and could now be open to a potential move – coming amid other reports from the continent that GSB have offered the ‘requested’ €40m (£35.6m) fee for his services (La Razon).
Taking this update into account, it’s safe to say En-Nesyri being enticed by the Irons could come as a boost in West Ham’s race to sign a forward – with the clock ticking and manager David Moyes recently confirming that GSB have made a bid to land him (Evening Standard).
Transfer Tavern take
Standing at a lofty 6 foot 3, the La Liga powerhouse has averaged an impressive 3.1 aerial duels won per 90 for both club and country since 2018 – highlighting his prowess as a target man (WhoScored).
He could be exactly what West Ham need as a Michail Antonio alternative, and Moyes may be hoping the club can get a deal done as soon as possible.
