Sevilla striker Youssef En-Nesyri has informed the club he does not want to leave amid interest from West Ham United.
That’s according to El Desmarque, who reject claims elsewhere that the player is now keen to move to the London Stadium.
The Hammers made their move for En-Nesyri earlier this week, with a €30m bid rejected by the La Liga club, who, initially, were not keen to sell.
That has changed over the course of this week, though, with it explained in Spain that those in charge of the club are divided over a possible sale.
While there are those who would prefer to hold onto En-Nesyri and see his value rise in future, there are others, including director of football Monchi, who would see a sale at around €40m as extremely good business.
That is a price West Ham are now believed to have matched, leaving the player with a big decision to make.
Most of the claims in Spain have been that he doesn’t want the move, preferring to stay in Seville after only joining them a year ago.
However, yesterday saw a claim that he was ‘seduced’ by the idea of playing for West Ham and would want the move should the two clubs reach an agreement.
That was very much against the grain and El Desmarque’s Sevilla edition have dismissed it again, stating that the player has made his intentions clear.
According to their information, Sevilla have received a ‘succulent’ offer from West Ham for the forward, who also has a ‘dizzying’ proposal on the table.
However, he has ‘made clear to Sevilla’ that his wish is to carry on playing in Nervión and has transmitted this to his environment in ‘a blunt way’.
He does not intend to listen to any more offers, and sources close to the negotiations say that he doesn’t even want to talk about the offer from West Ham, despite them being ‘determined’ to sign him and having offered to double his wages.
