Arsenal are still interested in signing Sevilla’s Youssef En-Nesyri after trying to land the winger in the summer with the 24-year-old apparently in the form of his life this season.
With Alexandre Lacazette running down his contract at Arsenal, the club are looking to bring in another forward.
In the summer, they reportedly tried to land Sevilla’s Youssef En-Nesyri with a formal offer being submitted at the start of June.
A few months later, Arsenal were reportedly offering Alexandre Lacazette to get their hands on En-Nesyri.
Now, ABC Sevilla believe Arsenal are still very interested in the centre forward, who has three goals and two assists in nine games this season. Last season, En-Nesyri scored 24 (no assists) in 52 games.
Arsenal have apparently let it be known that they will offer En-Nesyri a deal ‘far superior’ to the one he currently has in Spain. He reportedly earns £45kpw at Sevilla which is around £5kpw less than Mohamed Elneny and Runar Runarsson earn at Arsenal.
En-Nesyri has a release clause of €80m (£68.5m), and previous reports suggested that Arsenal would also need to pay some money on top of offering up Lacazette – who will only have six months on his contract.
En-Nesyri is currently valued at around £36m and has four years on his current contract remaining.
