Liverpool and Manchester United are keeping tabs on Sevilla striker Youssef En-Nesyri, according to reports in the Spanish media.
West Ham are believed to be frontrunners for the Moroccan international, having previously had a bid knocked back in the January transfer window, but it seems they may have competition from the Reds.
Supporters on Twitter have been debating whether En-Nesyri would be the right target if the Merseyside club do go after a striker in the summer:

Useless striker, would be a nonsensical move.
Player is a waste , unless we want another Andy Carroll then pass

Watch him first bfore you think he’s Carroll or Benteke type. Bet you guys still think CR plays as winger.

Reports suggest that En-Nesyri could break Sevilla’s record for a transfer fee received, with a valuation set at £40m, but we shall see if a team is prepared to pay that much for the forward.
En-Nesyri has been in excellent form, having scored 23 goals in 46 appearances, but there is a feeling that he could be a one-season wonder, having failed to score more than nine league goals in a single campaign until this year.
