The forward is highly rated in Spain with the likes of Real Betis, Schalke, Borussia Dortmund reportedly interested in the player.

Arsenal reportedly view En-Nesyri as an affordable signing who can bring depth to the forward positions. Danny Welbeck is expected to leave the club in the summer and En-Nesyri would be a decent replacement for the Englishman.
