West Ham have made a “fresh approach” to secure the services of Sevilla striker Youssef En-Nesryi, according to The Athletic journalist David Ornstein.
The Hammers first made an offer for the Moroccan international in the 2021 January transfer window, only for their bid to be knocked back by Sevilla.
However, it now appears that David Moyes’ side are looking to sign En-Nesryi on an initial loan deal until the end of the season.
Sevilla are said to be keener to sell the forward, with reports suggesting they have set a €40m (£35m) price tag, so the La Liga side may not accept the proposal. The inclusion of an option to buy could, though, tempt them into parting ways with En-Nesyri this month.
The 25-year-old was a key player for Morocco as they made it all the way to the semi-finals of the World Cup, but it has to be said that his goal record this season is pretty disappointing. He has yet to score in the league despite making 12 appearances. It’s hardly the form of a couple of years ago when he was also attracting interest from the likes of Arsenal and Brighton.
