Sevilla sign striker En-Nesyri for $32mln

By AAP Newswire

Sevilla have signed striker Youssef En-Nesyri from Spanish La Liga rivals Leganes for a reported 20 million euros ($A32 million) pending medical tests.

The forward, who has scored four goals in 18 appearances for Leganes this season, could solve fourth-place Sevilla's problems in attack, where they have lacked goal power.

"The striker, who arrived in Sevilla on Thursday to complete his medical, has signed a five-and-a-half year deal, until 30th June 2025," Sevilla said in a statement.

En-Nesyri scored for Morocco against Spain in a 2-2 draw at the 2018 World Cup.
