In a recent report, La Razon has mentioned that West Ham United are in pole position to recruit Sevilla striker Youssef En-Nesyri this summer. It has been revealed that the Spanish outfit are willing to entertain offers for the Morocco international which could open the door for the Hammers to seal a move for him at the end of this campaign (La Razon).
En-Nesyri’s Excellent Productivity At Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan Stadium
En-Nesyri is having an outstanding season at Seville as he has produced several influential performances as the focal point of Julen Lopetegui’s attack. The Fes-born attacker has banged in 22 goals in 45 matches for his current employers this term across multiple competitions.
However, if we take his goal-scoring numbers out of the equation, the Moroccan forward has struggled to give a good account of himself in the final third after averaging 2.1 shots, 0.5 key passes and 0.4 dribbles per game in La Liga and the UEFA Champions League this season. He has also been sloppy when distributing possession in the opposition half, as evidenced by his pass success rate of 70.8% in both those competitions (stats via whoscored).
Despite his poor link-up play, En-Nesyri’s impressive goal-scoring numbers make him a decent option for the Hammers to consider in this off-season. David Moyes desperately needs to bring in a new forward to add some cover and increase competition for Michail Antonio, who is still the only senior striker in his squad, so En-Nesyri could be a shrewd option for West Ham in the summer.
What Will The Morocco International Add To David Moyes’ Side?
En-Nesyri can use his quickness to make some well-timed runs in behind the opposition defence and is proficient at creating space for himself to get a few shots in on-target. Standing at 1.89m, he is a towering presence inside the opponent’s penalty area and can win his fair share of aerial duels for his team. Hence, we can expect the 35-time Morocco international to add some pace and power to the Hammers attack.
What makes En-Nesyri such a great striker is his ability to find the back of the net consistently at the highest level. He has transformed himself into a lethal finisher in front of goal and possesses a great leap in him that helps him outjump his marker and score a few goals with his head.
If En-Nesyri can settle into the Premier League well, he could potentially add plenty of goals to Moyes’ frontline. The Sevilla star has what it takes to be a success story at the London Stadium and could even help the East London giants compete for some major silverware in the coming seasons.
