En-Nesyri to West Ham- But Can It Work?

Image for En-Nesyri to West Ham- But Can It Work?

West Ham‘s striker hunt appears to be a lot clearer now, with Youssef En-Nesyri emerging as the frontrunner. But is the Moroccan forward the perfect fit for the Hammers, or is this a reunion driven more by Lopetegui‘s past than West Ham’s future?

There’s no doubt En-Nesyri thrived under Lopetegui at Sevilla. The striker’s pace and aerial prowess align with Lopetegui’s preferred style of play. However, past success doesn’t guarantee a seamless transition.

The Premier League‘s breakneck pace and physicality can be a harsh welcome for new arrivals. While En-Nesyri possesses the physical attributes, adapting to a new league takes time.

The lure of the Premier League and a reunion with Lopetegui are enticing, but Saudi Arabian clubs offer a more relaxed environment and potentially higher wages. Will En-Nesyri prioritise competition or comfort?

West Ham desperately need a reliable goalscorer. En-Nesyri’s record speaks for itself, but can he replicate that form in a new system and under increased pressure?

While En-Nesyri has the potential to be a good fit for West Ham, it’s a transfer with some question marks. Lopetegui’s influence is undeniable, but the onus will be on En-Nesyri to adapt and deliver in a demanding league.

    Who knows. Hammers are coming from a long way back with the current squad and the style of football under Moyes to where we supporters and the new’management team want to be. Nothing is guaranteed with a rebuild of this size. I’m sure there’ll be some successes and unfortunately perhaps one or two failures in the transfer market. I see this as a two year, maybe three before we are established as a top six or even a top four club.
    Just got to be patient and have faith the new management structure can indeed move us forward.

      Moyes signed Scamacca (sold), Aguerd (seems like he’s going), Cornet (hardly played him), Downes (sent out on loan), Kehler sent on loan then sold). All these were bought at same time.
      What a pig’s ear.
      New manager needs some leeway and hope there’s an improvement.
      It’s going to need time look at Notts Forest (didn’t really work) and it’s taken Chelsea nearly a season to blend.
      How long will new manager be around? Who knows.

    I have been patient for 67 years – I don’t really see any change (for the better) happening ; whoever we sign – & there are an awful lot of names of players I know very little about being touted around – I tend to think that breaking into the top 6 may be beyond us. But, hope (against hope) springs eternal !

  • Graham says:

    Surely we’ve got to be better than last year and just because you’ve never heard of players doesn’t mean they would be no good. Trust the views of the football director.

      It’ll never happen, there’ll be some sort of excuse, he wanted too much money, the club wanted more sale on % or something along those lines. Same sh*t, different day.

  • Pongo says:

    Time for a reality check, supposedly we are getting all our business done early but as yet all we have is the usual rumours about who we are supposedly after and yet no signings so for me pre season isn’t looking good thus far. We may well end up starting the new season with the same ageing squad though with numbers depleted so instead of 23 we may be starting with just 17 players and some youths.

    Don’t be silly the move would break down at the last minute?

  • Morty says:

    The player has been joining us for 3 years now, I’ll believe it when I see it
