Long term West Ham target could finally join the Hammers to reunite with old boss.

Despite repeated failed attempts, West Ham still seem determined to sign En-Nesyri. The Sevilla striker has been a target for a number of years now and it seems inevitable that we will be linked with him every window. However, our own ExWHUEmployee has revealed that there is genuine substance to these rumours and that he is being considered once again,

With Julen Lopetegui’s announcement being imminent, it makes more sense than ever that the Moroccan would be willing to switch sunny Spain for not so sunny Stratford.

En-Nesyri has scored an admirable 15 goals in La Liga this season. While he has been a mainstay in the Sevilla side no matter who the manager is, he has been inconsistent with finding the back of the net with him not even hitting double figures in the previous two campaigns. Thankfully, if anyone is able to get the best out of him it will be Lopetegui.

Previously, there were said to be concerns on his part about moving to East London. Given that he has the opportunity to work under his former boss again, this may not be as much of an issue.

Claret and Hugh reports that he could be available for an extremely fair £21 million. In today’s market, that’s a sensational price for someone who has a record of roughly 1 goal in every 3 games.

Obviously, there are the usual questions about whether he can step up to the Premier League but this is someone who has scored plenty of goals in Spain and in Europe. If he can consistently put out the numbers he has this season then he would be a brilliant successor to Michail Antonio.
