Report: 24-goal star reportedly eyed by Tottenham and West Ham is dreaming of Premier League move
According to Mundo Deportivo, the Moroccan international is eager for a move this summer, with England on his mind. As per the report, En-Nesyri ‘hopes’ he can join a ‘big’ Premier League side.
The striker was in fine form for Sevilla last season. The forward hit a career-high 24 goals in all competitions for the Andalusian club, firing them to a UEFA Champions League spot in the La Liga table.
En-Nesyri is a target for numerous clubs this summer, including, now, Tottenham and West Ham. The Premier League sides are both keen on signing a new striker this transfer window.
For Spurs, they need backup, or even a potential replacement, for Harry Kane. The England captain’s future remains in the air, and there is a small chance the forward could leave north London.
Whereas the Irons require a natural striker as well as attacking depth as West Ham prepare to compete in the UEFA Europa League group stages.
Indeed, either side would view themselves as having a good chance to sign En-Nesyri. However, the language of his intentions could mean that he is eager to move to a Premier League side that are competing in the UEFA Champions League.
After all, whilst playing in the Premier League might be the endgame for most players, En-Nesyri might have his heart set on playing for one of the top-four of the division. And if that is the case, Spurs and West Ham will struggle to sign him.
