Tottenham and Fulhamlead the cluster of clubs that are chasing Stuttgart’s hotshot Serhou Guirassy.
Guirassy, the Guinean striker who plays in Germany’s Bundesliga for No 9, has had a stellar start to this season. He scored 14 goals within his first 8 Bundesliga games.
The 27-year old’s hat-tricks in Mainz and Wolfsburg helped him leapfrog Harry Kane and Co. on the scoring chart for the Bundesliga. And his feats were not unnoticed.
Pete O’Rourke, a transfer expert for Football Insider writes that both the Premier League’s leaders Spurs as well as the Cottagers next door are planning January transfers of the forward in form.
Marco Silva and his team are in desperate need of reinforcements at the front after losing Aleksandar Mitrovic, their star striker to Al-Hilal during the last summer transfer window.
Ange Postecoglou has done a great job in North London, but they might struggle in the bidding battle to beat their rivals.
Guirassy has a contract with his employer until 2026. He only became a permanent employee in the summer after an outstanding loan period.
Reports suggest that the contract includes a release clause of only 15 million PS, which will surely have clubs lining up to sign him this winter.
Guirassy, who is recovering from a minor injury to his hamstring at the moment, is likely to play for Guinea next year in the Africa Cup of Nations.
