English Premier League side West Ham have edged closer to replacing Sébastien Haller with En-Nesyri.
As reported here on Futaa this month, the Hammers sold Haller to Ajax Amsterdam for £25m, about a year after he was signed for a club record fee of £45m from Eintracht Frankfurt.
While other reports claimed the club was to sign Red Bull Salzburg’s Zambia striker Patson Daka, David Moyes’ side have instead made an official move for Sevilla’s 23-year-old Moroccan striker En-Nesyri.
