Tottenham make enquiry over potential €20m deal for French hitman

Tottenham have reportedly made an enquiry over a potential summer move for Amiens SC striker Serhou Guirassy.

Spurs boss Jose Mourinho was in the hunt for a new striker throughout the winter transfer window, after leading marksman Harry Kane was ruled out for months with a hamstring problem.

However, moves for the likes of Edinson Cavani, Willian Jose, Islam Slimani and Verdat Muriqi failed to materialise and Mourinho ended up bringing in wide attacker Steven Bergwijn from PSV instead.

The lack of having another true No.9 on their books hit Spurs even harder when Son Heung-Min went down injured as well, and it would appear that Mourinho will not let that mistake happen again.

As a result, the north London outfit have been in the hunt for a new forward to ease the burden on Kane when he eventually returns to action and according to Le10 Sport, Spurs ‘took information’ about Guirassy ‘recently’.

The forward, who is expected to leave this summer, has an asking price of €15m ‘minimum’, although there are ‘whispers’ that could even reach €20m.

Amiens were recently relegated down to Ligue 2 after the French government called it a day on the top two leagues, and it looks like they will do business for the right price.

London rivals West Ham are also reported to have shown an interest in the player, with ‘discussions currently underway’ regarding a potential transfer to London Stadium.

So it looks like Spurs may have to move quick for the France Under-20 star, who scored nine goals in 24 appearances before the season in France came to a premature end.

 

 

Meanwhile, Tottenham are reportedly ready to give agents the green light to try and find a new club for club-record signing Tanguy Ndombele this summer.

The Frenchman, who joined Spurs from Lyon for an initial €62million last summer, has struggled to live up to expectations in north London and could be on the move again just a year after his arrival.

Football Insider reports that Spurs have ‘mandated agents to find Ndombele a new club’, as well as being prepared to listen to offers for him.

However, the likelihood of Tottenham recouping the transfer fee that they shelled out for the former Lyon man last July is virtually impossible, given that prices for players are expected to fall dramatically due to the financial crisis currently within the game. Read more…
