Youssef En-Nesyri has left Leganes to pen a five-and-a-half-year deal with La Liga rivals Sevilla.

Following the exit of Munas Dabbur and Chicharito this month, the Seville outfit paid the Morrocan's buy-out clause of €20 million to strengthen their frontline.

En-Nesyri started his professional career in Spain with Malaga and he has scored 18 goals in 87 La Liga matches so far.

He moved to Leganes in the summer of 2018 and was their joint-top scorer with four league goals so far this season before his exit.

The Morocco international joins his compatriot Yassine Bounou in Julen Lopetegui's team and he could make his debut when fourth-placed Sevilla visit Real Madrid for Saturday's La Liga outing.
