West Ham United Ready To Reignite Interest In This La Liga Forward: Wise Move For Moyes?

Must Read

A 26-year-old sports writer and an aspiring football coach who has road-tripped across the Scottish Highlands, but has never been to Wales. Sucker for cliff-hangers and catchy riffs. Known to be a grunger and not to be a stranger.

In a recent print edition, AS has revealed that West Ham United are ready to reignite their interest in Sevilla forward Youssef En-Nesyri in the summer. It is understood that the Hammers are desperately trying to recruit a new striker and has identified the Morrocco international as a potential option before the start of the new campaign (transcripted and translated by Hammers.News).

En-Nesyri’s Impressive Record At Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan Stadium

En-Nesyri has proven his worth as a prolific goal-scorer in La Liga this season after putting in several match-winning performances as Julen Lopetegui’s primary striker. The 23-year-old has netted 21 goals in 42 matches for the Spanish outfit this term across all competitions.

Besides his goals, the Fes-born sensation has struggled to contribute in other ways as he is averaging 2.0 shots, 0.5 key passes and 0.4 dribbles per game in the Spanish top-flight and the UEFA Champions League this season. En-Nesyri has also been sloppy when linking up play with others around him, as evidenced by his pass success rate of 70.1% in both those competitions (stats via whoscored).

The Morrocco international has established himself as a deadly finisher but he doesn’t offer much else on the field. Even then, En-Nesyri can be a decent signing for the Hammers as they are in dire need to find a suitable backup for Michail Antonio, who remains David Moyes’ only senior centre-forward.

What Are The Sevilla Star’s Best Attributes?

As mentioned earlier, En-Nesyri is an accomplished finisher in the final third but needs to work on improving his all-round game. He can use his powerful 1.89m frame to win his fair share of aerial duels and can score a lot of goals using his head.

The 35-time Morrocco international possesses the strength to hold possession up for his teammates but tends to give away the ball cheaply at times deep inside the opponent’s half. At 23, he will only get better with each season, so Moyes will do well to bring him to the London Stadium during this summer transfer window.

Will Recruiting En-Nesyri Be A Wise Move For The Hammers?

En-Nesyri has what it takes to lead the line for West Ham week in week out in the coming seasons. He could also form a dangerous attacking partnership with Michail Antonio if Moyes chooses to play with two strikers up top. All in all, landing En-Nesyri would be a wise move for the East London giants as he will be a signing for the long run and could even help them challenge for some major trophies over the next few years.
