West Ham United have been linked with several strikers in recent months, and it appears that they are keen on signing the severe forward Youssef En-Nesyri.

According to the latest reports, the Premier League side have now agreed on a fee with Sevilla, and it remains to be seen whether they can get the transfer over the line in the coming weeks now.

The hammers have improved significantly since the arrival of David Moyes, and they came close to challenging for Champions League qualification this past season.

However, West Ham were overly reliant on Michail Antonio as their only goal scorer, and the lack of depth up front has ended up costing them.

Antonio missed some important matches with injury, and the hammers were toothless up front without him.

Bringing in a reliable goal-scorer will improve West Ham immensely in the final third, and En-Nesyri has certainly proven himself in the Spanish league with Sevilla.

The physically imposing striker has the attributes to thrive in Premier League football, and it remains to be seen whether he is willing to move to the London club this summer.

West Ham have a talented squad at their disposal, and if they can hold onto their key players this summer, they could easily challenge for European football next season as well.

Reports state that the hammers are likely to pay a fee of around £21.5 million for the Sevilla striker.

The Moroccan is at the peak of his powers right now, and he certainly has the quality to justify the reported outlay.

If the Sevilla striker manages to adapt to Premier League football quickly, he could prove to be a bargain for the hammers in the long run.
