Arsenal have been told they will have to pay at least €45m if they wish to sign Youssef En Nesyri in the January transfer window.
That’s according to Mundo Deportivo, who say Sevilla and the player are ‘calm’ about the situation around the striker.
For those that don’t know, En Nesyri has continued to be linked with a move to the Premier League after his impressive performances over the last few years.
Arsenal are the latest to be linked with a move, with reports in England stating that they are eyeing a swap deal involving Alexandre Lacazette in January as the Frenchman’s contract is set to expire next summer.
Mundo cover that today and say Sevilla ‘do not value’ any offer that does not reach €45m or ‘even more’ than that figure.
They believe that goals have ‘to be paid for’, and the fact that the Moroccan is a ‘proven striker’ means he should have a premium on his head.
The La Liga side paid €20m to Leganes for En Nesyri two and a half years ago, and he has been ‘revalued a lot’ since then, so Sevilla want to earn big money if they are to sell.
At the moment, they’re ‘calm’ about the situation, and so is the player, although there is a feeling that could change if summer signing Rafa Mir were to take too much of the limelight away from him.
It seems then that’s what Arsenal need to hope for, with any deal likely to be a very expensive one at this point.
