Nuno’s Tottenham Hotspur and Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal are scouting Youssef En-Nesyri, according to TEAMtalk.
What’s the story?
It has been reported that Arsenal, Tottenham and Brighton and Hove Albion all have made checks on the Sevilla striker this summer.
The La Liga club have started to look for replacements and have identified Blackburn Rovers star Ben Brereton.
Tottenham Hotspur face a problem
This is not the first report that has mentioned Arsenal with a possible move for En-Nesyri.
La Razon reported last month that Arsenal are ready to send Alexandre Lacazette to Sevilla in 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 they are offered Lacazette as well as cash, then they could be open to that deal too.
En-Nesyri has scored three goals and provided one assist in five La Liga appearances so far this season.
The Sevilla no. 15 scored 18 goals in 23 league starts and scored six goals in four Champions League starts last season.
