According to a report by Spanish outlet La Razon, La Liga club Sevilla are expecting West Ham United to lodge a summer attempt to sign striker Youssef En-Nesyri after their failed January bid – with manager David Moyes revealing that GSB had tried to snap up the Moroccan last month (Evening Standard).
En-Nesyri, who has scored 13 goals in 22 league appearances this campaign (Transfermarkt), was at the centre of interest from GSB and co in January as they attempted to sign a forward.
En-Nesyri bid from West Ham expected
However, as per journalist David Ornstein, West Ham couldn’t agree a fee for En-Nesyri which resulted in talks breaking down.
La Razon, with this fresh update, claim that Sevilla are expecting the Hammers to lodge a summer attempt for their striker alongside the likes of AC Milan and AS Roma.
As a result of this anticipated interest, the club have slapped a €40 million (£35m) price tag on En-Nesyri, with GSB potentially having to invest heavily if they do in fact wish to sign him during the next transfer window.
Transfer Tavern take
While it is not mentioned in this report whether West Ham are definitely going to lodge another attempt, Sevilla are fully expecting it to happen – but only time will tell if the Hammers do return with another offer.
Lauded as an ‘excellent’ player for Sevilla by journalist Guillem Balague on Premier Sports, the 6 foot 3 powerhouse has become a regular goal scorer this season and could potentially replicate that type of form in the English top flight.
