• Tottenham is linked to a possible move for Youssef En-Nesyri
  • En-Nesyri's camp prefers to stay at Sevilla for one more season
  • West Ham will likely fall short for the second time in its pursuit of En-Nesyri

Despite wanting to stick it out with Sevilla FC, transfer talk involving Youssef En-Nesyri just won’t go away.

It appears that the 24-year-old striker got a new suitor--with reports that Tottenham Hotspur has joined the pursuit for his services.

Other teams linked to the Moroccan strike include West Ham and Wolverhampton. In a report from Mundo Deportivo, Tottenham is now reportedly interested in En-Nesyri although there are questions on the table.

The move could be part of the Spurs' intent to find a suitable replacement for Harry Kane. But the question raised by pundits is whether it would be wise to do so.

En-Nesyri had 24 goals last season, including six UEFA Champions League strikes. Despite his efforts, most see his contributions as underwhelming.

It is possible that Tottenham is not thinking long-term and maybe considering the Moroccan as a short-term solution.

It is a ploy that the Spurs have resorted to in the past but failed.

Among players they tried in the past include Roberto Soldado who had one good season in La Liga before joining the Spurs.

Aside from him, there was also Erik Lamela who had a good showing in Serie A. Unfortunately, he failed to bring that same game brilliance to Tottenham.

Hence, the level of interest that Tottenham has in En-Nesyri may be questionable. It would be best to take it with a grain of salt for now.

Hence, the only credible pursuers to the striker are West Ham and Wolverhampton.

Liverpool is another club linked to the Moroccan striker although the seriousness of their interest remains unknown.

Regardless, the camp of En-Nesyri seems to favor a stay with Sevilla for now.

The player’s agent believes that staying for at least one more season could benefit the striker to become an even better player.

Aside from that, Sevilla coach Julen Lopotegui and company do not appear to be open to moving the Moroccan for now.

If this holds, West Ham would fall short yet again in their pursuit for En-Nesyri.

The Hammers tried to get him in January, and it seems their second try will end up the same way.
