Report: Club hoping for West Ham bid

Sevilla want West Ham to bid for striker Youssef En-Nesyri in January, according to a new report.

Mundo Deportivo reports that the Spanish club are hopeful of selling the Morocco international in the January transfer window as they bid to raise funds.

En-Nesyri has only made two starts in La Liga this season and has not scored in the Spanish top-flight this term.

Around two seasons ago, the Hammers were said to be interested in doing a deal for En-Nesyri and an offer worth €30m (£25.7m) was tabled, per the report.

However, Sevilla rejected that bid, although they are now looking to offload him.

En-Nesyri has been impressing during his time with Morocco at the World Cup, scoring in the win over Canada, and his nation have progressed from a group that also included Croatia and Belgium.

His form has allowed Sevilla to start hoping that they can receive a bumper fee for him in the winter window.

However, one has to think that the Hammers are likely to be the ones saying no this time.

The Irons signed Gianluca Scamacca in the summer and do not have all that much cash to throw around in January; it wouldn’t make much sense to do a deal for another striker, particularly one who has been in such poor form for his club.
