West Ham have made a fresh approach to sign a Sevilla striker who recently scored a hat-trick, and it has been suggested how David Moyes can complete a difficult deal.

After finishing sixth and seventh in the Premier League, the Hammers have fallen back to earth this season.

West Ham currently reside outside the relegation zone on goal difference alone. Their mark of 15 goals scored is the joint-third lowest in the league.

The final third has been where Moyes’ men have struggled most this campaign. Jarrod Bowen has not maintained the form that saw him force his way into England squads last season, while new recruits Lucas Paqueta and Gianluca Scamacca are yet to ignite.

Few expect it West him to go down given the caliber of player they possess. But the longer they remain in the bottom third of the table, the more a relegation scrap becomes their new reality.

To avoid such a result, the athletic report a fresh approach has been lodged for a striker who West Ham hope can breathe life into their attacking ranks.

West Ham in for Sevilla’s Youssef En-Nesyri

The Hammers previously bid €30m (around £26m) for Sevilla’s Youssef En-Nesyri this time last year. The ever-reliable David Ornstein now reports that a new approach has been made 12 months on.

En-Nesyri, 25, is yet to score in 12 LaLiga games this term. However, he plundered a hat-trick in Sevilla’s 5-0 drubbing of third-tier Linares Deportivo in the Copa del Rey last Wednesday.

He scored 18 league goals when he completed a full campaign as recently as the 2020–21 season. He also played twice for Morocco at the World Cup and got the nod to start every match they played. Clearly, he is a player who can find the net with regularity in the right environment.

To shed light on West Ham’s proposal, Ornstein added that an initial six-month loan deal has been explored.

It will reportedly not be greeted warmly in Seville, as they are also looking over their shoulder. Sevilla are 17th in LaLiga and losing a starting striker would only hurt their chances of beating the drop.

A move is therefore considered difficult, although there is hope for Moyes and co.

Ornstein noted that if West Ham committed to either an option or commitment to buy at the end of the season, Sevilla might be more willing to play ball.

In any case, West Ham’s interest in En-Nesyri is described as ‘firm’. As such, a second or even third approach could be envisaged if Sevilla beat back the first.

Michail Antonio and Scamacca have combined for just five league goals between them this season. Adding new firepower seems to be the priority at the moment and the addition of En-Nesyri could change the course of West Ham’s season completely.
