Hammers table big bid – report

The Hammers have made a major bid of €40m for Sevilla striker Youssef En-Nesyri, according to a new report in Spain.

La Razon claim, via Sport Witness, that the Irons have upped their bid for the forward.  

There have been so many reports of interest in strikers that we’ve almost begun to tune it out.

Sevilla are said to have told the Hammers what it will take for him to leave La Liga and this report is very probably wrong.

The sale of Seb Haller did not exactly fill the coffers right up and a move at €40m equates to just over £35m.

That kind of money just isn’t available in the January transfer window, whoever you are, and En-Nesyri is unlikely to be hot footing his way to Spain.

As we’ve reported before, David Moyes isn’t likely to splash over £15m on a striker and it’s actually more likely a loan arrives!

  1. So we sell a player to bring in a loaner, oh its getting better all the time. Why is it that we are so inept ay managing what really is a straight forward process. It beggars belief that we sold our only other senior striker without a replacement identified and obtained but that we then go and, yet again, are incapable of bringing in the value we saw missing in Haller. All the good work, our best start ever in the PL, is being messed with because of GSB incompetence. Nothing will change until they are gone.

    • “ nothing will change until they are gone “ . Your very words .
      It’s as if you haven’t noticed the change that is happening at West Ham United . If that needs explaining then I am at a loss to understand your comments .

      • There’s no logic when you have an ingrained prejudice Kevin

      • I believe that Julian is referencing the systemic change required at the Club not the momentary upturn in the results this season. Not having an effective scouting network, not having a strategic approach to transfers, not reinvesting in the squad and having the smallest squad in the league and general financial mismanagement are what GSB have presided over for 11 years. If that needs explaining then I am at a loss to understand your comments.

  2. West Ham haven’t got 40 million , so the story is completely false . If we get anybody at all it will a loan player with an option to buy . I wouldn’t for a minute think the Board is consisted of stupid people , they are business people who know how to make profits and because of them West Ham United is surviving . Not everyone likes them it’s fare to say ; but without them where would we be .. ?. . I think the fans need to stop treating the board as badly as they do .This board were humble enough to ask Moyes to return and we haven’t been disappointed with that decision .

  3. Enough of all this rubbish. £40 million. This is laughable. The time has come for all West Ham related web sites to have a blanket ban on any more transfer related stories.
    We have been linked to every possible striker in the world. If the Ex Employee comes up with another forward we have made a bid for, I’ll scream. It’s bloody ridiculous. Ex Employee and West Ham related web sites STOP. Let’s all just wait and see, who we buy and then comment.
