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.
