West Ham are set to try to buy a long-term striker target that they have failed to sign on a number of occasions.

There are certain players that West Ham get linked with in almost every transfer window. Armando Broja, Jonathan Tah and, more commonly than anyone else. Youssef En-Nesyri. He is someone that David Moyes has held long-standing interest in and, according to Fichajes, this Summer could finally be the time that he gets his man.

The Moroccan has been in decent form this season, scoring 7 league goals already as well as bagging 2 in the Champions League. Overall though, his record is a little uninspiring and he has only ever hit double digits in the league once in his career.

Despite poor stats in La Liga, the Hammers are still said to be interested in the Sevilla striker and see him as a potential replacement to Michail Antonio who has been struggling in front of goal himself over the past few years.

The 26-year-old only has just over a year remaining on his current contract with the Spanish side yet to reach an agreement for an extension. If a deal is not reached, then it may be in their best interest to cash in before they lose him for free.

It has been years since our Irons first showed interest in signing the No.9, but the saga could be coming to an end. If nothing comes from it though, it will be interesting to see if we approach him ahead of the expiry of his contract to try and sign him on a free transfer – that would represent a much better deal for the East London side.
