Rabat – After three years with Malaga CF, Moroccan international football player Youssef En-Nesyri is thinking about joining Leganes.
According to Spanish outlet AS, the Atlas Lion’s current club is negotiating his transfer to Leganes. Malaga is asking for €10 million to release its striker. However, Leganes is only ready to offer €6 million to enroll the 21-year-old football player.
Since the 2018 World Cup in Russia, Youssef En-Nesyri has earned the respect of millions of Moroccans, especially after he scored during Morocco’s last game against Spain. En-Nesyri’s 81st-minute header delivered a temporary lead to the national team.
The native from Fez started his football career in the youth team of the Maghreb AS. He joined the Mohammed VI Academy team led by Nasser Larguet, along with Moroccan Hamza Mendyl, where he trained for a few years before being loaned to the Malaga CF club in 2015.
A year later, he was bought by the same club for €125,000 and managed to earn a starting position by scoring in the first four games in which he participated.
As for his career with the Moroccan team, the young striker was summoned for the first time on August 31, 2016, to play in a friendly against Albania. He scored his first goal with the Atlas Lions in the 2017 Africa Cup against Togo.
In 2018, En-Nesyri scored in a friendly against Estonia, a game played in preparation for the Russian World Cup, before offering Moroccan fans the joy of winning a second goal against La Roja.
