Manchester United, Manchester City and West Ham in three-way tussle for La Liga striker
Youssef En-Nesyri of Sevilla is expected to be the subject of a huge transfer battle, with Manchester United, Manchester City, and West Ham all interested in signing him.
Youssef En-future Nesyri’s at Sevilla has been updated in a recent Fichajes report. Rafa Mir’s success looks to have encouraged the Spanish giants to contemplate selling their star forward. Monchi, the team’s sporting director, is aware of the player’s high value, with many seeing him as a more cost-effective option than Erling Haaland.
As a result, En-Nesyri has a plethora of suitors, with the article mentioning three clubs as possible suitors. These are all Premier League behemoths, including Manchester City and West Ham United, the season’s surprise gift.
Formerly of Leganes, En-Nesyri is regarded as one of La Liga’s top forwards, having had tremendous success since moving to Sevilla. In just 87 games, he has already scored 33 competitive goals, with 18 of them coming in the 2020/21 Laliga season.

The Moroccan international has pleased spectators with his all-around skill during his stint in Spain’s top division. The forward, who is 1.89m tall, is particularly intimidating in physical and aerial duels, as well as having the ability to sniff out goalscoring opportunities in the final third.
As a result, Manchester United has identified him as a possible replacement for Erling Haaland for the coming season. The same can be said for Manchester City, who may look to the Moroccan as a backup plan if they miss out on top targets like Haaland and Harry Kane next summer.
Despite the obvious window of opportunity to sign Haaland next summer, the two Premier League giants have been unusually forthright in their pursuit of a new striker. They’re looking at a variety of possibilities around Europe, and Youssef En-Nesyri is likely to be one of them, owing to the fact that he won’t set you back a fortune.
West Ham’s interest in the Sevilla attacker is likely due to David Moyes’ concerns about his offensive unit’s lack of depth. The Hammers have already been chastised for over-relying on Michail Antonio, so En-arrival Nesyri’s could relieve some of the pressure on the 31-year-old.
However, West Ham are examining alternative options, with Vitinha of Braga emerging as the most recent target for the London club.
