Amiens striker Serhou Guirassy has set his sights on moving to the Premier League. The Frenchman, who has been linked with West Ham over the past couple of months is reportedly available for around €15m (£13m) this summer.
Agent Mark McKay, an intermediary working on the sale of the 24-year-old, has said that a number of teams in the UK have enquired about the forward recently:
“A number of clubs in England and across Europe have shown an interest in Serhou after he performed so well for Amiens. In the current climate due to the impact of the coronavirus pandemic clubs might not be able to pay huge transfer fees like they used to and in that respect, Serhou could prove to be a bargain in this window.”
“Serhou’s preference has always been to play in the English Premier League, but Amiens will evaluate all offers that come in for him and make a decision from there.”
The Hammers could face stiff competition from the likes of Arsenal and Bournemouth for the player, while the likes of Chelsea and Tottenham have also been mentioned as possible destinations in recent weeks.
Guiarassy’s side Amiens have been relegated from Ligue One after the French season was ended by the country’s government, with the striker having scored nine goals in 23 league appearances.
West Ham manager David Moyes could do with having another forward. Sebastien Haller and Albian Ajeti are really the only players in the squad who can lead the line.
