Nuno’s Tottenham Hotspur and Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal are signing Youssef En-Nesyri, according to TEAMtalk.
What is the story?
It has been reported that Arsenal, Tottenham and Brighton and Hove Albion have all checked the Sevilla forward this summer.
The La Liga club have started looking for replacements and have identified Blackburn Rovers star Ben Brereton.
Tottenham Hotspur face a problem
This isn’t the first report that mentions Arsenal with a possible move for En-Nesyri.
La Razon announced last month that Arsenal were ready to send Alexandre Lacazette to Sevilla as part of a swap deal for the Morocco international.
We covered the report here on HITC Sport.
Such a deal could be tempting for Sevilla.
Yes, the Spanish club could still sign Brereton, but if he is offered Lacazette along with money, he could be open to the deal as well.
En-Nesyri has scored three goals and provided an assist in five La Liga appearances so far this season.
Seville no. 15 have scored 18 goals in 23 league starts and scored six goals in four Champions League starts last season.
