West Ham and Tottenham have been given some good news overnight with the Express reporting that Serhou Guirassy will be available for a cut-price fee this summer following Amiens’ relegation from Ligue 1.

According to a report from French media outlet Le 10 Sport, the Hammers and Spurs both want to sign the 24-year-old.

And the Sun claims that Amiens will demand around £15 million for the Frenchman.

That might have changed now, however.

The Express claims that Guirassy could now be available for a knocked down price this summer.

And considering the current financial climate, both West Ham and Tottenham will surely be keen to secure themselves a bargain.

Good signing?

The Frenchman has scored nine goals in 24 Ligue 1 outings for Amiens so far this season. In total, he has scored 38 goals in 150 career club appearances (Transfermarkt).

Standing at 6ft 2in tall, Guirassy is strong in the air. In 24 league games this season, he has won an average of 4.1 aerial duals per game (Who Scored).

In those outings, the Amiens hitman averages 1.9 shots, 0.7 dribbles and 0.6 key passes per game (Who Scored).

The 24-year-old  is clearly not the most prolific of strikers. But he does put in a shift in other departments.

David Moyes and Jose Mourinho are both well-renowned for liking hard working centre-forwards.

So Guirassy might just be an ideal option for either West Ham or Tottenham.

Now all that remains to be seen is which of the two London rivals wins the race for the Frenchman’s signature.
