The signing could be officially announced as soon as Thursday, according to local reports.
Youssef En-Nesyri has taken major strides since moving to Spain as an 18-year-old from the Mohammed VI Academy. Two decent spells at Málaga and Leganés have now culminated in a possible transfer to one of the biggest clubs in the country.
With the imminent departure of Javier Hernández to Los Angeles Galaxy and the sale of Munas Dabbur to Hoffenheim, Sevilla are in desperate need for a new centre-forward, to challenge Spanish-Moroccan Munir El Haddadi and the underwhelming Luuk de Jong.
According to Estadio Deportivo, the Andalusian club have activated En-Nesyri’s release clause on €20m, which allows him to negotiate a potential move. The local newspaper believe the signing could become official already tomorrow, Thursday, if things go as planned. The 22-year-old, born and raised in Fès, is set to undergo medical tests and sign a long-term deal which lasts until the summer of 2025.
