West Ham United’s pursuit of a striker might finally reach fruition as new transfer rumours swirl around Youssef En-Nesyri. Hammers News, citing an insider with knowledge of new manager Julen Lopetegui’s targets, claims En-Nesyri is at the top of Lopetegui’s wishlist.

En-Nesyri’s name has been linked with West Ham in numerous transfer windows over the past few years. The Moroccan striker’s past association with Lopetegui at Sevilla adds another layer of intrigue to this rumour. The insider suggests En-Nesyri is the striker Lopetegui desires for West Ham’s attack this summer.

West Ham’s existing interest in En-Nesyri creates a natural synergy for this potential deal. “He is one of his favourite players,” revealed the source regarding Lopetegui’s admiration for En-Nesyri. West Ham’s scouting reports evidently align with Lopetegui’s preferences.

The report also highlights En-Nesyri’s respect for Lopetegui, under whom he thrived at Sevilla. Despite Sevilla’s struggles this season, En-Nesyri has maintained an impressive goalscoring record, averaging a goal every two games. With 15 goals in 30 starts across La Liga and the Champions League, he presents a potent attacking option.

En-Nesyri’s strengths are well-known to West Ham fans: searing pace and aerial prowess. The potential combination of En-Nesyri’s finishing ability with James Ward-Prowse’s set-piece mastery is an exciting prospect for the Hammers’ attack.

Perhaps this new turn of events underscores the assurances West Ham might have provided Lopetegui regarding transfer backing. His arrival likely hinged on promises to pursue his targets, including En-Nesyri and others on his shortlist. While Tim Steidten will spearhead most signings, Lopetegui will have a say in acquiring his preferred players.

With a significant number of potential signings (8-10) on the horizon, West Ham fans have reason to be optimistic about the upcoming transfer window and the Lopetegui era.

    Rather have Scamacca back but as it seems Lop is going to be the man and having managed the player before i guess it is not a bad idea

    If he’s the striker the new manager wants, then let’s get him in! I can’t bear to see another striker come to West Ham and fail because our head coach doesn’t fancy him.

    This story again? As for Hammer News yet again reporting it. They’d report the cleaner installing a new bog brush in the carzy at Rush Green just for another pointless click bait story!

  • Monkey's Bellend says:

    The only consistency in transfer rumours, is an En-Nesyri story.

    I wonder if the same old story will be trotted out in 10 years time… 20 years time… 30 years time…

    Hey; how about a Balotelli rumour?

    Re the last paragraph:
    So with a purse of 85m, and 10 players to buy, are you really expecting me to be excited by the average cost of players being £8.5m?
