West Ham United are reportedly busy preparing a second offer worth around £32m for Sevilla forward Youssef En-Nesyri.

According to the Daily Star, this sum will fall short of Sevilla £35m evaluation.

West Ham, who have also been linked with Stade Reims’ Senegalese forward Boulaye Dia, are in the market for a striker following the sale of Sabastien Haller to Ajax Amsterdam, which has left Michail Antonio as the only recognized striker in their first team squad.

En-Nesyri only joined Sevilla from Leganes in January 2020 after the Europa League champions triggered his €20 million release clause.

The 23-year-old Morocco international has scored 13 goals in 26 appearances across all competitions this season, including a hat-trick in a 3-2 victory over Real Sociedad.

The Hammers will return to Premier League action away to Crystal Palace on Tuesday after having moved up to seventh following a 2-1 win over West Brom earlier this week.
