Report: Hammers table bid for La Liga striker

West Ham are reported to have made a firm offer for wants to sign Sevilla striker Youssef En-Nesyri.

According to The Athletic’s David Ornstein we have tabled a bid for the La Liga star, but the initial offer of £22.5 million-plus £4.5m in add-ons was rejected.

Ornstein claims the bid was lodged over the weekend, and West Ham are expected to return with another offer as En-Nesyri is their top target.

En-Nesyri 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.

En-Nesyri has since scored 18 goals in 50 games since joining the La Liga giants on a five-and-a-half-year contract, but he could be moving to the Premier League if reports are to be believed.

  1. His scoring record is just under 1 in 3 in La Liga which is regarded as a tough league. About the same as Haller managed at West Ham. Not sure why this makes him an upgrade. Seems very streaky in his scoring too. 7 in 4 games then nothing for 10 games. Need a sustainable threat. Not for me this one.
