Julen Lopetegui, Sevilla coach, ruled out in the press room a possible departure of their top scorer, Youssef En-Nesyri, despite the real offer from West Ham, rejected by Sevilla, which reached 30 million with the bonuses. The Basque coach does not want to hear about a possible loss within his group of titular men although there is still a market and in Nervión, in the midst of the economic crisis, they do not close the doors to a better offer. In fact, there are more and more powerful Premier clubs after En-Nesyri.

If the offer reaches 40 Sevilla will sit down and consider a different scenario. He must also have the opinion of En-Nesyri himself, who has found stability in Nervión, and at 23 years of age, he is not going to press for a quick exit, and where they do not guarantee that continuity that he has won at Sánchez-Pizjuan. His thinking, for now, does not move from Sevilla.

A bit like what happened with Kunde last summer, when he gave Sevilla the tools to negotiate with Manchester City, a club that multiplied his salary, although he knew that it would not be the last knock on his door from a powerful club. More will come. And at the moment he continues taking steps as a Sevilla. En-Nesyri has scored 12 goals in a season where he has not been an undisputed starter either, alternating many games

With Luuk de Jong. His departure would cause the Andalusian club to go out on the market in search of a replacement, since Carlos Fernandez, the third striker in contention, has barely had opportunities since he is the one Lopetegui likes the least of the three. Precisely the youth squad forward occupies part of Monchi’s time in this market. Because if Real manages it is difficult to unblock the departure of Willian Jose, with the same Premier that pursues En-Nesyri also West Ham it would go after the Sevilla player, with whom they reached an agreement in summer and they could reach those that Sevilla requested at the time 12 million plus a percentage of the future sale.

This would give the club liquidity to look for another player profile that the squad needs, with Franco Vazquez also solving his future away from the capital of Seville. A midfielder who complements and strengthens a key area in the team. Not many movements are expected in January, although only one can cause an earthquake.
