West Ham and Tottenham have been handed a big boost in their pursuit of Amiens ace Serhou Guirassy, with the Ligue 1 outfit’s president suggesting that he won’t stand in the way of the striker if he wants to leave this summer.

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.
Both David Moyes and Jose Mourinho will be keen to bolster their respective attacking ranks at the London Stadium and the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium this summer.
And Guirassy might just be a decent option for both clubs.
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).
And Amiens president Bernard Joannin ha given the two London clubs a massive boost as they reportedly look to sign the striker, when speaking to Le 11 Amienois:
“With Serhou, we have a commitment to letting him go this summer. He had important proposals from English clubs (in January), but he wanted to stay to save the club – these were the words he said to me. He wanted to go to until the end of the story with his teammates. (Now) we have important proposals from England and also from France.”
Guriassy is clearly not a prolific striker. And in truth, West Ham and Tottenham could both probably do with someone who has more of an eye for goal.
But £15 million represent decent value for the 24-year-old.
The Amiens hitman possesses plenty of energy. He is more than happy to do the donkey work for his team throughout the duration fo the 90 minutes.
And if the Hammers and Spurs want someone who can keep their current centre-forwards on their toes, Guirassy might just be the ideal option for them both this summer.
