Nottingham Forest told of ‘bargain’ price for in-form striker after transfer interest.
Latest Nottingham Forest news as transfer talk swirls around Reds-linked forward Serhou Guirassy amid Stuttgart form.
Nottingham Forest-linked striker Serhou Guirassy is said to have a release clause in his contract which is due to become active next year.
The Reds were linked with the Stuttgart forward in the summer as they looked to bolster their attacking resources in a bid to push on in the Premier League. He was said to have been on their radar for some time.
And if Forest consider reviving their interest, Guirassy could be available for a bargain price. But there is likely to be plenty of competition for his signature come the end of the campaign.
According to German outlet BILD (via HITC), Guirassy “becomes a bargain” next summer. It is said, within the next year, a £17 million release clause in the 27-year-old’s contract will become active.
The Reds’ Premier League rivals Fulham were also linked with the front man this summer. Talks were said to have been held over a possible move to Craven Cottage, but Guirassy ended up staying put at Stuttgart.
He has been in fine form for the Bundesliga outfit so far this season. He has scored in five consecutive league appearances, registering 10 goals thanks to a hat-trick and a treble of braces.
Strengthening their attacking options was a priority for Forest during the transfer window. They added forward Divock Origi on deadline day and also brought in wingers Anthony Elanga and Callum Hudson-Odoi.
AC Milan loanee Origi has made two substitute appearances so far. He faces a fight to earn a place in the starting XI given the form of Taiwo Awoniyi, who has scored three goals so far this term.
