West Ham United weren’t able to sign Youssef En-Nesyri despite showing keen interest in the Sevilla star in the past.

David Moyes will leave the Hammers at the end of this season and Julen Lopetegui is set to replace the Scot at the London club. The latter had managed the striker when he was at the La Liga side.

Earlier this month, we covered claims from Spain that Lopetegui and En-Nesyri may meet again at West Ham.

Vamos Mi Sevilla FC state the incoming manager ‘seriously wants to sign’ the 26-year-old for the Premier League side in the summer window.

It’s again pointed out the Morocco international has long been on West Ham’s radar and the 57-year-old replacing Moyes next season makes ‘interest much stronger’ in the frontman.

His deal lasts until 2025 and without a renewal, the next window will be Sevilla’s last big chance to cash in from his sale. The report states they would like to collect €25-30m for the player, and he may need to convinced personally, so West Ham would have to offer decent wages.

En-Nesyri has starred for the Andalusian club this season, managing 19 goals and three assists from 38 games this season.
