Arsenal told they ‘must pay £38.5m to sign hotshot striker Youssef En-Nesyri, 24, from Sevilla in transfer window’
SEVILLA will reportedly demand £38.5million for Arsenal target Youssef En-Nesyri at the next transfer window.
The Gunners have been linked with the player, along with West Ham and Manchester United, since he began firing for the LaLiga side.
The Moroccan striker hit his third goal of the season on the weekend, in a 2-0 win over Espanyol.
And he caught the eye with a 24-goal tally last campaign to put Sevilla on the defensive when it comes to his future.
According to the Express, via Mundo Deportivo, Arsenal are plotting a January bid for En-Nesyri.
The offer could include Alexandre Lacazette in a player-plus-cash deal, ahead of the Frenchman's contract expiring in the summer.
But Sevilla want to ensure any deal matches their £38.5m valuation of the star forward.
The Spanish side paid £17m to sign 24-year-old En-Nesyri from Leganes 18 months ago, and he has been a big contributor in league and Europe.

Saturday's outing saw him register again, sending Sevilla third in the process.
However, he did come off injured in the second-half and was already out of Wednesday's Champions League clash with Wolfsburg due to suspension.
Sevilla are said to be calm over their man's transfer future but Arsenal may be ready to continue their heavy spending after the turn of the year.
After splashing more cash than any other Premier League team in the summer, Mikel Arteta's side are linked with more incomings in January.
Philippe Coutinho is said to be a target for a potential loan move from Barcelona.
A less-familiar signing could arrive in the form of Noa Lang, the Club Brugge winger talked up for a £25.6m move to the Emirates.
Funding the deals could be Bernd Leno's exit, with the goalkeeper reportedly wanted by Inter Milan.
