West Ham may turn to Montpellier striker Gaëtan Laborde after being told “to break the bank” for priority target in Sevilla front man Youssef En-Neysri.
That’s according to the Daily Telegraph who claim the striker will cost David Moyes around £16 million.
The twenty-six-year-old is in his third season at Montpellier and has scored three goals in his last seven appearances but the Ligue 1 club are set to listen to offers for the player.
He has two full seasons left on his contract and is seen as a player who could adapt to the Premier League quickly.
Sevilla meanwhile appear to have no intention of allowing En-Nesyri out and we have been told by sources close to the club they want a minimum of €30 million for a player they bought for €20 million last season.
He has scored 13 in 26 games for club and country so far this season and has been on West Ham’s radar for a while.
The Hammers were linked with an interest in the 23-year-old in the summer of 2019 when he was still at Leganes, but they went after Seb Haller instead, and the Moroccan joined Sevilla in an £18m deal six months later.
