Hammers return to the old routine

Conflicting reports are emerging surrounding the future of Sevilla striker Youssef En-Nesyri. The ‘will he/won’t he’ saga seems to change daily with Talk Sport now reporting that West Ham will press ahead with a bid.

It’s believed that the Hammers are keen to bring in Nayef Aguerd’s Moroccan teammate on a six-month loan deal with the option to buy him for between £20-£25 million at the end of season.

However, En-Nesryi has been less than enthused at the prospect of leaving the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán Stadium. Not for the first time the star striker has said he just wants to focus on ‘helping Sevilla out at the moment’.

The striker went on to say. “Right now, I want to focus on Sevilla. It’s not about money, it’s a sporting matter, wanting to help the team in the worst moments.”

Personally I appreciate those sentiments. Taking my West Ham hat off for a second it’s easy to admire a player who’s committed to his club irrespective of league position. However it’s imperative that West Ham don’t continue to chase players who have little interest in joining our club.

Too much time was spent on the futile pursuit of Jesse Lingard and lessons have to be learnt. En-Nesryi has unequivocally stated his position and it’s time to move on.

  1. Another terrible signing, has no aggression and is lazy..

  2. Worth a loan deal until the end of the season. Some of these work out, some don’t.

    Too many of West Ham’s past and current overseas signings don’t hit the ground running (as they are expected to) and are written off after a relative short time because they’re not given time to adapt to the Prem.

  3. What is Mark Noble doing ? Surely he could pick Players who will come and will be worth the loaning.
