According to sources who spoke to Football Insider, Tottenham and Fulham will compete to capture Stuttgart striker Serhou Guirassy in the January transfer window.
Fulham’s first priority is a striker, and Football Insider reported on Friday, October 27, that Marco Silva will likely receive funding to spend in the winter window.
Among the lowest scorers in the Premier League, Fulham has not yet found a replacement for star player Aleksandar Mitrović, who moved to Al-Hilal in the summer.
Tottenham, though, is also keeping an eye on Guirassy, the hot striker.
The Guinean international’s Stuttgart contract includes a release clause of approximately £15 million. He is currently sidelined due to a hamstring injury.
In the Bundesliga, he has produced more than Harry Kane, the striker for Bayern Munich.
In eight games in the German top division, Guirassy has managed 14 goals and one assist, while the former Tottenham player has nine goals and four assists.
Only this summer, following a fruitful loan season at the German team, did he permanently join Stuttgart.
The 27-year-old, who spent his time in France and was desired by Premier League teams, inked a deal that will expire in June 2026.
With two goals in eight games for Guinea, Guirassy is anticipated to represent his nation at the African Cup of Nations in 2019.
Despite their awful scoring record, Fulham is currently in 13th place in the Premier League and is not in danger of being relegated.
After nine games, Tottenham is leading second-place Man City by two points in the English Premier League.
