Youssef En-Nesyri is a Moroccan professional footballer who plays for La Liga Spanish club Sevilla FC as a striker and for the Morocco national team.
He spent his professional career in Spain, representing Málaga, Leganés and Sevilla in La Liga.
A full international for Morocco since 2016, he represented the nation at the 2018 FIFA World Cup and two Africa Cup of Nations tournaments.
After starting his youth career at Mohammed VI Football Academy, En-Nesyri joined Málaga CF for a fee of €125,000 in 2015. Initially assigned to the Juvenil squad, he made his senior debut for the reserves on 16 April 2016, scoring the last in a 3–1 Tercera División away win against Guadix CF. He netted back-to-back goals in the following three matches against CD Huétor Tájar, River Melilla CF and FC Vilafranca and went on to become an integral player for the reserve side which narrowly missed promotion to Segunda Division B.
Following Malaga's relegation from La Liga, En-Nesyri signed a five-year contract with CD Leganés in the main category. He scored his first goals in his ninth game, to earn a 2–2 home draw with nearby Rayo Vallecano in the first leg of the last 32 of the Copa del Rey on 30 October, and on 23 November he netted his first league goal, the only one of a victory also at the Estadio Municipal de Butarque against a Deportivo Alavés team that was challenging for the top spot.
En-Nesyri scored six goals in three games as Leganés avoided defeat: a brace in a 2–2 draw with Eibar, the late winner at Rayo, and then all three goals against Real Betis; this last result made him the first Pepinero to net a hat-trick in La Liga.
Sevilla FC signed En-Nesyri from Leganés for a reported €25 million, on a contract lasting to June 2025; the Andalusians had recently sold their strikers Moanes Dabour and Javier Hernández. He debuted two days later in a 2–1 loss at Real Madrid, as a 65th-minute substitute for Munir El Haddadi, and on his first start on 9 February he opened the scoring on a trip to RC Celta de Vigo with the same result.
En-Nesyri made his debut in European competitions on 20 February 2020, in the UEFA Europa League last 32 first leg away to CFR Cluj in Romania. He scored the late equalizer in a 1–1 draw, that put his team through on the away goals rule.
