West Ham United could be set to reignite their interest in a long-term target…
“Again, like all those teams down the wrong end of the table scoring goals has been an issue and that’s been the same for West Ham.
“They just haven’t hit the heights of last season. Michail Antonio and summer signing Gianluca Scamacca just haven’t been consistent enough or scored enough goals for West Ham so far this season.
“So that’s why West Ham are in the market for a new striker in this transfer window. Obviously, they are big admirers of En-Nesyri having previously tried to sign him before.”
It is not unfair to suggest that this season has been a resounding failure for the Irons thus far.
It has been a catastrophic fall from grace from the 59-year-old who has handed a transfer war chest in the summer, with one of those signed namedropped by O’Rourke as an inconsistent failure thus far.
However, by adding some much-needed goals to the fold, they could achieve safety with relative comfort given how tight the table is.
Results depending, a run of three straight wins could see West Ham jump up as high as 11th.
He is yet to recapture the form of the 2020/21 campaign, but perhaps a move to England might reignite a career that has stagnated in Spain.
Even former Arsenal striker Kevin Campbell had previously urged his old club to swoop for the 25-year-old, as he claimed: “I will tell you that much. He will carry a threat top end of the pitch. He has good size, speed, knows where the goal is, he is skilful.”
Perhaps En-Nesyri could provide the spark that is needed, helping to salvage what has been a miserable season thus far.
