Crystal Palace and West Ham United are reportedly keen on signing Guinean striker Serhou Guirassy from Bundesliga club VfB Stuttgart.
According to 90min, West Ham United and Crystal Palace will compete for the signature of Serhou Guirassy. This season, the 27-year-old has been in fantastic form for the Bundesliga club, hitting 14 goals in 8 games. He will seek to maintain his remarkable form, and it is no wonder that Premier League clubs are interested in him.
VfB Stuttgart are aiming to keep their prized asset in January, and it remains to be seen whether West Ham United come out with a hefty offer to lure them when the transfer market reopens in the middle of the season.
The Hammers could undoubtedly use a consistent goalscorer like him, and how the scenario develops remains to be seen.
Mohammed Kudus joined West Ham from Ajax this summer, and the 22-year-old has proven to be an exciting addition. The Ghana international, on the other hand, is better suited to the job of a second striker. As a result, West Ham should consider investing in a quality number nine.
Guirassy has the ability to perform well in the Premier League and might be a good signing for West Ham. This season, the Hammers will compete in the UEFA Europa League, which they hope to win. Last season, they won the UEFA Europa Conference League.
A signing like Guirassy might make a major difference in the final third and help them end the season strongly. Meanwhile, Crystal Palace must improve the quality and cutting edge of their final third.
The Eagles are likely to be a less tempting choice for the striker, who prefers to play in Europe. Furthermore, West Ham have more resources than Crystal Palace.
Meanwhile, clubs like as Brentford and Bournemouth are interested in the striker, so it will be intriguing to see where he ends up. Guirassy has also been connected with Real Madrid and Tottenham Hotspur, according to recent sources. He will not be a cheap acquisition in January, and his admirers will have to pay a premium to persuade the German club to trade him.
