Arsenal keeping tabs with 24-year-old African centre-forward

The London giants have approached Sevilla about Youssef En-Nesyri as they target a top-rated striker in the next windows, possibly next summer. Next summer, Arsenal are expected to have a shortage of centre-forwards when some of their existing stars leave.

Morocco international announced himself onto the big stage after an excellent campaign with Sevilla. En-Nesyri was in fantastic form last term, scoring 24 goals in all tournaments. Another campaign with similar numbers could push him into the elite category of centre-forwards, and Youssef is sure to attract interest from some of the biggest teams from Europe.

The 24-year-old striker has a long-term future at any of the big clubs in world football. However, his existing long-term deal with the Spanish club could prompt La Liga giants to demand a sizable transfer fee from suitors. The Gunners are just one among many other clubs which stay interested in the Moroccan striker.

The Gunners could now become the front-runners by registering their liking for the centre-forward. Arsenal have asked Sevilla about the African striker, and this enquiry might lead the La Liga giants to quote their price for the centre-forward.

The transfer fee could well be a massive one considering Youssef’s goalscoring numbers. Arsenal might have an immediate requirement to sign forwards next summer, with the futures of Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah in doubt, as both have entered the last year of their respective deals.
