Manchester United tracking Sevilla striker Youssef En-Nesyri as Serhou Guirassy wants another club

Sevilla striker Youssef En-Nesyri has emerged as a January transfer target for Manchester United after Stuttgart’s Serhou Guirassy made it clear he wants to join Tottenham Hotspur, according to the Sun.

The Red Devils want to bolster their attack during the winter transfer window, with Rasmus Hojlund yet to score in the Premier League since his big-money arrival in the summer.

Man United have been impressed with the performances of Guirassy this term, with 17 goals to his name in the Bundesliga in 14 appearances.

However, Spurs have moved ahead of them in the race for the 27-year-old, and they have now set sights on his Sevilla counterpart.

En-Nesyri has established himself as one of the best strikers in La Liga and Europe, with two Europa League titles to his name at the club.

The 26-year-old has bagged 62 goals in 179 games since joining them from Leganes in January 2020, with nine coming this term.

Man United need a striker capable of bullying defenders and finding the back of the net regularly, and the Morocco international is their man.

Red Devils manager Erik ten Hag has sent scouts to watch him in recent weeks, and they will also be in attendance for the La Liga game against Atletico Madrid today.

En-Nesyri is under contract at Sevilla until June 2025, but he could be sold for around £16 million next month as the club tackles financial issues.

The hitman helped his country reach the World Cup semi-final last year, bagging the winning goal against Portugal in the quarter-final.

Man United could do with such a player as they look to make something out of their underwhelming campaign.
