Reports stemming from Spain suggest that Sevilla have named their asking price for striker, Youssef En-Nesyri.
Arsenal linked with En-Nesyri
This news will come as boost to Arsenal, who have been linked with the striker of late.
The Gunners currently have a number of attacking options on their books. However, the majority could certainly be improved upon.
Alexandre Lacazette has been used as Arsenal’s main no.9 under Mikel Arteta. But the Frenchman’s form is often inconsistent. He is also 30 and, most importantly, out of contract next summer.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is another experienced option at centre-forward, but he generally performs best on the left wing.
This leaves the inexperienced trio of Eddie Nketiah, Gabriel Martinelli and Folarin Balogun.
As a result, it was not too surprising to see it recently reported that the Gunners will try to sign a forward in the winter window, and that the position will be prioritised over bringing in a new midfielder.
This was followed by a report which stated that Arsenal’s interest in Youssef En-Nesyri continues to grow, and that Mikel Arteta and co. may decide to include Lacazette in future negotiations for the Moroccan:
🚨🔃 #Arsenal‘s interest in #EnNesyri continues to grow 🇲🇦. #Gunners, after asking #Sevilla for information, may decide to include #Lacazette in a future negotiation. Evaluations in progress. 🐓⚽ #Calciomercato #Transfers #EPL #Liga https://t.co/Wcj0sQ4QUB

Sevilla set asking price for En-Nesyri
And now, as mentioned above, Sevilla’s asking price for the Arsenal-linked star has been revealed.
As per Goal, citing Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo, the Gunners and West Ham have both been credited with an interest in En-Nesyri.
It is then confirmed that Sevilla have set their price-tag for the attacker, who could be lured away from Spain if a bid in the region of £38.5m is forthcoming.
The 24-year-old has scored three and assisted one in six La Liga outings this term. Would he be an upgrade on Arsenal’s current crop of strikers?
