According to a report from L’Equipe, West Ham have already made multiple bids for Amiens hitman Serhou Guirassy, but the Ligue 1 outfit are holding out for €20 million (£17.5 million).

Hammers boss David Moyes must be looking to bring a new striker to the London Stadium this summer.
Sebastien Haller and Albian Ajeti have both failed to impress since joining West Ham in the summer of 2019.
The problem for the Hammers is that they will not have lavish funds to spend this summer.
L’Equipe claims that the east London outfit have been tracking Serhou Guirassy. In fact, they suggest that West Ham have already lodged more than one bid for the 24-year-old hitman.
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 have other facets to his game that could prove to useful for West Ham.
Whether the Hammers will be prepared to pay £17.5 million for Guriassy, however, remains to be seen.
In the current climate, that does sound like an awful lot of money for someone who doesn’t actually score very regularly.
