• The chase for Youssef En-Nesyri heats up with West Ham and Wolverhampton entering the race, a report says
  • En-Nesyri prefers to stay with Sevilla to further improve his skills
  • The Moroccan striker hopes to stay at least one more season, but a good offer may alter the course

Youssef En-Nesyri would prefer to stick it out with Sevilla FC, but his fate may not be in his hands. Despite his belief that one more season with Sevilla would be for his own good, at least two teams have expressed interest in the Moroccan striker, a report says.

En-Nesyri has reportedly advised his agent not to entertain offers. But with big money on the table, all that is subject to change.

Wolverhampton is the latest team to express interest in the Moroccan striker, AS reported. The Wanderers are willing to pay Sevilla £34.39 million ($47.73 million) this summer transfer window, the report said. International Business Times could not independently verify this information.

The Wolves' offer is the latest one linked to En-Nesyri. Just recently, West Ham United also expressed interest in the international striker. El Desmarque reported that the Hammers are willing to pay SFC the same fee for the services of the 24-year-old player.

If the report is accurate, it would not be the first time that West Ham will try to snag En-Nesyri. The club tried to bid for his services in January but fell short. Regardless, that has not put off West Ham, which is reportedly now trying to see if a deal with Sevilla can be sealed this summer transfer window.

En-Nesyri collected 18 goals in 23 La Liga starts for Sevilla last season. He has made it clear that he would prefer to stay at Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan Stadium, but a good offer could alter that.

According to his agent, En-Nesyri believes he can become an even better player if he plays on for at least one more season with Sevilla FC. He has earned the trust of Sevilla coach Julen Lopotegui and the technical staff and does not appear to be open to moving and adjusting to a different club.

“We think he can continue to progress, and what better place than Seville,” En-Nesyri’s agent said to Spanish media ABC in February.

The market value of En-Nesyri has jumped since arriving at Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan Stadium. He was acquired from Leganes for about $23.87 million, but his progress unsurprisingly boosted his market value. He is now speculated to be worth roughly between $59 million to $83 million, according to the International Center for Sports Studies.

However, interested clubs may not pay more than $35 million to $47 million for the 24-year-old striker. Regardless, Sevilla will still earn a slight profit if they decide to accept a deal from other clubs for En-Nesyri.
