Arsenal have been told they will need to pay at least €45 million if they wish to sign Youssef En-Nesyri in the upcoming January transfer window.

Arsenal are set to let Alexandre Lacazette leave the club and, if they can find a buyer in January, he will be off then.

Rather than use Folarin Balogun more with the first first team or try and find a way to integrate Eddie Nketiah, the club are eyeing up a new striker and a number of players have been linked.

Arsenal have been linked with Yousset En-Neysri for about a month now, and according to reports in Spain, Sevilla and player are calm about the future and what it holds for the forward.

Arsenal were, however, first reported to be interested in him back in 2019.

Reports that Arsenal are keen on the Sevilla man seemed to be emanating mainly from England, rather than Spain, and the La liga side have reportedly said that they “do not value” any offer which does not reach €45m or more.

Just a few days ago, it was claimed that Arsenal offered Lacazette to Sevilla in return for Youssef En-Nesyri.

En-Nesyri has three goals and two assists in seven games this season so far with all three goals coming in his six La Liga games.
