Report: West Ham in talks to sign Serhou Guirassy, but Chelsea and Tottenham want him too

According to a report from French media outlet Le 10 Sport, West Ham are in talks with Amiens to sign Serhou Guirassy, but Tottenham and Chelsea want the striker as well.

Hammers boss David Moyes will undoubtedly be keen to sign a new striker this summer.

The east London outfit need more competition for Sebastien Haller. And Albian Ajeti has been a huge flop since joining the club last summer.

Le 10 Sport claims that Guirassy is a target for West Ham. And the east London club are apparently already in talks with Amiens regarding a potential deal for the French forward.

But Frank Lampard and Jose Mourinho might have something to say about that.

Le 10 Sport suggest that Chelsea and Tottenham both want Guirassy. And Amiens allegedly could demand as much as €20 million (£17.5 million) for the 24-year-old.


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).

Guriassy is clearly not a prolific striker. And in truth, West Ham, Chelsea and Tottenham could both probably do a lot better.

Especially for the reported fee of £17.5 million.

Perhaps this is one that all three London clubs should avoid. There is far better value to be had out there in the current market.
