On January 18th, The Athletic reported West Ham United are willing to table a €30m offer for Sevilla’s Youssef En-Nesyri.
Later that day, local reports from Seville reported the figures mentioned were ‘clearly insufficient’ and the La Liga side would only consider the striker’s sale if there’s an improved proposal from the Hammers.
Another local outlet La Colina de Nervion has a report on the player and their title states West Ham ‘hunt for En-Nesyri’.
It’s claimed Julen Lopetegui’s side have ‘rejected’ the first offer made by the Premier League side, but that doesn’t mean it’s the ‘end of negotiations’.
West Ham are ‘willing to continue’ their fight for the Morocco international, a year after he joined the Europa League winners from Leganés.
As per the report, ‘murmurs’ of a ‘great sale’ have emerged from the Spanish club’s offices.
The offer presented by David Moyes’ side is ‘not negligible’ and this is important because Sevilla must sell first before signing new players in the winter market.
La Colina de Nervion explain Sevilla, for their part, ‘don’t want’ to part ways with the player in the ongoing window.
That’s because En-Nesyri is not only one of the ‘best assets’ in the club’s attacking division, but they are aware ‘he can still give a lot and continue to revalue himself’.
However, the website states West Ham’s offer for En-Nesyri is ‘bordering on levels that could become difficult to reject at some point’ for Sevilla.
Lopetegui’s side will have a tough decision to make as the Hammers continue to remain in the ‘hunt for En-Nesyri’.
