Anouar El Mhassani is a former Ajax player, who signed for West Ham United in 2017. Does the young winger have enough potential to develop into a regular Premier League player?

We tried to sign Anour El Mhassani with numerous clubs during the first summer window. Bids with Manchester United, Real Madrid, Juventus and Ajax all had the same result: West Ham is not willing to agree terms on a level that reflects El Mhassani’s abilities. They are willing to discuss a transfer, but only for 87M or more.
And we can all agree that this is a tad too much for a player like this… If you are managing a club from a lower level, you can always try to loan El Mhassani for a season (or even longer). West Ham should be willing to send him away at some point. If you want him on a permanent basis, just wait a bit. As the seasons progress, El Mhassani should become available for a reasonable fee. The only problem you then have is crappy AI development.
