WEST HAM are interested in a January move for Sevilla striker Youssef En-Nesyri.
However, there is little confidence from the Hammers that a deal can be struck due to the Spanish side’s similarly poor domestic position.
Boss David Moyes has previously insisted the east London club are not planning any winter window business after spending around £160m in the summer.
However, in recent press conferences, the Scot has hinted at some potential incomings following their poor start to the Premier League campaign and goalscoring woes.
Sevilla’s En-Nesyri, 25, was a target for Moyes and West Ham in 2021 only to be priced out of a switch, with the Spaniards demanding up to £35m.
They remain keen on the Moroccan international, and an approach has been made for a loan this window with an optional permanent fee at the end of the season.

Like West Ham, Sevilla find themselves in 17th and a battle to avoid the drop with just three wins in their opening 16 league matches – one victory fewer than Moyes’ men have currently.
West Ham have scored just 15 goals in 18 outings in the Prem, with the likes of Jarrod Bowen, Gianluca Scamacca and Michail Antonio struggling to fire them up the league.
En-Nesyri is seen as too valuable to Sevilla, despite failing to net in La Liga thus far.
