Manchester City fans have been reacting to a post on Twitter which relays a report that claims the club could turn attentions to Sevilla striker Youssef En Nesyri if they fail to sign Erling Haaland next summer.
There is no hiding the fact that Pep Guardiola is keen to recruit a new centre-forward, after Man City were left frustrated with their pursuit of Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane over the summer.
Pep Guardiola has only one natural striker at his disposal in Gabriel Jesus, who has largely been utilised out wide this season.
The Citizens have also been linked with Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Braut Haaland, who is reportedly Pep Guardiola’s ‘primary striker target’ as he looks for a new No 9 after the departure of Sergio Aguero last summer.
But the competition for Haaland is fierce, which means there will be many suitors and a lot of money thrown around to secure the signature of the prolific striker.
According to Spanish news outlet Fichajes as relayed by sport witness, the premier leaque champions could turn attentions to Sevilla striker Youssef En Nesyri if they fail to sign Erling Haaland next summer.
The report states that the La Liga striker is available for €50M, and while he’s not at the top of Man City’s list, there is interest.
En-Nesyri brings goals, as evidenced by an impressive 24-goal haul last season, six of which came in the Champions League.
He scored three in his first seven La Liga outings this season but his campaign has been hampered by muscular problems which have seen him play just two of Sevilla’s last nine,
Standing at 6ft2in and able to run in behind defences, En-Nesyri has all the attributes to thrive as a Premier League centre-forward and could be a terrific signing for Man City.
The report of Man City’s interest in En-Nesyri was shared on Twitter by City Xtra, and it attracted plenty of attention from the club’s supporters.
