An update has been provided on the future of Sevilla's Moroccan striker.

Aston Villa transfer target Youssef En-Nesyri could prefer a move to Saudi Arabia over the Premier League according to a report.

Football Espana has reported that as of yet no club has made an official offer or entered negotiations with En-Nesyri's club Sevilla. The striker has interest from Aston Villa, West Ham and Tottenham Hotspur but as of yet they haven't acted on it.

In addition to there being no transfer movement, Football Espana add that En-Nesyri could prefer a move to the Saudi Pro League over England. He is 'attracted' to the idea of playing in a league that boasts stars like N'golo Kante, Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema. AC Milan are also interested in En-Nesyri but he is 'not the priority' for them.

West Ham could stand the greatest chance of signing En-Nesyri because he has previously worked under Hammers boss Julen Lopetegui. It is added that the Moroccan international could remain in Spain for another season and then depart on a free transfer which would see him attract a better wage at the end of his deal.

A new contract at Sevilla does 'not look likely' and that could force the La Liga club in to selling. West Ham had a £25m bid rejected in January 2023 but that kind of fee could be enough now for Sevilla to consider parting with their striker.

In an alternative report from Spanish journalist from Maximo de la Cruz Ramirez, Manchester United will apparently make a €15-20m offer for En-Nesyri in the coming days. For whoever lands En-Nesyri this summer, they will be getting a striker that scored 20 goals in 41 games last term.

Before spending any kind of money, Villa might have to move on £60m worth of talent before the end of June to keep within the Premier Leagues' Profit and Sustainability Rules according to Football Insider. Clubs cannot exceed losses of £105million over a rolling three-year period, and Villa's motion to raise that to £135m was rejected.
