Youssef En-Nesyri is allegedly now keen to join West Ham United from Sevilla in the January transfer window.
That’s according to a report from Spanish website Fichajes.net who claim that Sevilla are open to moving the 25-year-old forward on this winter.
They are allegedly hoping for the striker to perform well for Morocco at the World Cup and subsequently initiate a bidding war for his services.
David Moyes has chased En-Nesyri for a year or so now, and recent reports suggested that Sevilla regretted not selling the Moroccan to West Ham.
The La Liga side are now trying to push En-Nesyri out the door.
And it seems as though Moyes could make another attempt to bring him to the London Stadium in the January transfer window…
West Ham eyeing January Youssef En-Nesyri swoop
Fichajes.net claim that the Hammers could make yet another attempt to bring the 25-year-old to the London Stadium in January.
I must say, I would be fairly underwhelmed if Moyes signs the Moroccan.
En-Nesyri has scored just four goals in his last 33 games for the La Liga side (Transfermarkt). In fact, he’s bagged just four goals since September 2021!
I have to say, I really wasn’t impressed with the Moroccan one little bit when we faced Sevilla over two legs in the Europa League last season.
Who knows? Perhaps En-Nesyri will get back to his best at some point throughout the season.
At things stand though, the outlook appears to be bleak for him at The Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán Stadium.
He certainly doesn’t seem to be anywhere near the levels he was at a couple of years ago.
It seems as though West Ham dodged a bullet by not signing Youssef En-Nesyri in the summer transfer window.
Let’s hope that Moyes doesn’t got back in for him, unless he is available for an unbelievable bargain fee.
