Source: Irons still eyeing La Liga striker

By Dave Langton

West Ham boss David Moyes is still interested in a deal to sign Youssef En-Nesyri at Sevilla.

A source close to the boss has confirmed that there is interest in doing a deal for the Morocco international, who was a target last year.

Moyes remains desperate to sign Armando Broja from Chelsea and that is the club’s top priority at this point.

However, there is an acceptance that there needs to be a shortlist beyond the Albania international and En-Nesyri has come up in conversations at the London Stadium.

When he was first linked in the 2020/21 season, he scored 24 goals in all competitions but he endured a difficult campaign last term, he scored just five times.

However, there is a feeling that the form was down to a botched recovery from injury, and that he could hit the goal trail again next season.

En-Nesyri has a contract until 2025 and he would likely cost in excess of £20m.

Broja is seen as an attainable target and there remains hope that he will sign from Chelsea.

But a bid for En-Nesyri could be on the cards if the Irons’ plans don’t pan out.

  1. I think en-nesyri could be a good signing since we have a morrocan international team mate of his now in aguerd. Moyes can then talk about the two morrocan boys fitting in really well like he did with the two Czech boys.

  2. This would be a good move I think.
    I hope we are still linked to Bayo (Claremont Foot) for some reason I think he would be a cheap back up and an Antonio Mk2

  3. It’s been noted elsewhere that he was name checked in the announcement of both our signings so far. Why would the media team do that?
