According to a report by Sky Sports journalist Kaveh Solhekol, Amiens striker Serhou Guirassy is up for sale this summer and the player’s representatives are ‘working hard’ to secure a move away – with Tottenham, Chelsea and Arsenal all previously being linked with a swoop.
The Ligue 1 side were relegated from the top flight last season and now they’re reportedly looking to offload Guirassy, who finished as their top scorer with nine goals in 23 starts.
As well as the Premier League trio, Rennes also want to snap up the 6ft 2 target man and can offer him the opportunity to play Champions League football.
Would Serhou Guirassy be good back up to Harry Kane?
100%, absolute tank
No, not worth the effort
Amiens, as per this report, value the player at £16 million – with club chairman Daniel Levy now gifted knowledge of the eight-figure fee required to sign the attacker.
One of the shining lights in an otherwise doomed campaign for Les Licornes, Guirassy was a colossus going forward over 2019/2020 – winning an impressive 4.2 aerial duels per 90 in the league according to WhoScored.
By comparison, no player in the Spurs squad can match such impressive numbers when it comes to battles in the air – with star striker Harry Kane, whom Guirassy would serve as back up if Tottenham were to sign him, winning just 2.6.
While the 24-year-old’s record in front of goal isn’t nearly as potent, manager Jose Mourinho could do with more presence up front after Kane was ruled out through injury for huge parts of last campaign.
The Premier League is arguably a physical division and one where Guirassy could thrive, especially if he is feeding off assists from the likes of Son Heung-min and Lucas Moura.
Whether or not Tottenham officially table a bid remains to be seen, but he could prove to be a diamond in the rough.
