West Ham set to put their plan to sign a long-term striker target this Summer in motion to get a deal done as soon as possible.

It wouldn’t be a transfer window without West Ham being linked with Youssef En-Nesyri, would it? For multiple years, the club have shown interest in acquiring his services and have failed to sign him after submitting bids on two occasions.

However, with Julen Lopetegui now in charge, and Tim Steidten dealing with transfers, the Hammers may just be able to convince him to join.

Unfortunately, they are reportedly set to face competition from a number of clubs, including Tottenham Hotspur and Aston Villa. In order to beat them to his signature, GIVEMESPORT believes that West Ham have a plan in place as they look to get their business done as early as possible.

“West Ham have a plan in place,” they claimed. “Firstly, the Hammers hope to gain an early indication of the desire of both relevant parties to get a deal over the line, which could spruce the link into action.”

“If West Ham manage to get the answers they are looking for in due course, the overall feeling is that they are expected to sharply progress the move to get a deal over the line before other would-be buyers are able to send any offers into the Spanish side’s inbox.”

“They also want to make sure that En-Nesyri, 27, himself is interested in a move to the English top flight and whether Sevilla, his current employers, are willing to part ways with him this summer for what could turn out to be a career-defining switch for the centre-forward.”

With 16 league goals to his name last season, En-Nesyri could be an excellent addition to the side and he would hopefully solve our Irons’ long-standing striker woes.
