Everton: Serhou Guirassy closing in on Blues move

Everton: Serhou Guirassy closing in on Blues move -Everton News

Everton are reportedly closing in on the signing of Rennes striker Serhou Guirassy, with a move to Goodison Park potentially being struck in the coming days.

The Lowdown: Guirassy linked with Everton move

The Blues were beaten 2-1 away to Aston Villa on Saturday lunchtime, with Frank Lampard’s side losing their two opening Premier League fixtures of the season.

A lack of attacking quality was noticeable at Villa Park and a new striker is a must this summer, in order for Everton to pull clear of a relegation battle.

One player who has been linked with a move to the Blues is Guirassy, who has scored 19 goals for Rennes in Ligue 1 over the past two seasons.

The Latest: Transfer reportedly close

According to L’Equipe [via Sport Witness], Guirassy is now ‘close to Everton’ and ‘could leave in the coming days’, with a deal expected to be struck soon.

The 26-year-old’s current deal expires in 2025, so a big bid would likely be required to prise him away.

The Verdict: Much-needed attacking quality

The defeat to Villa exemplified Everton’s struggles in front of goal, with Anthony Gordon leading the line but not necessarily a natural striker.

Should Everton move for Emmanuel Dennis?

Yes

No

Guirassy is someone who would come in and provide much-needed firepower, with his aforementioned goalscoring record highlighting his class, as well as winning three caps for Guinea.

The six-foot-two colossus is someone who can give Lampard both quality and depth and his ability to play both centrally out wide is an added bonus.
