Tottenham ready to trigger Serhou Guirassy release clause

Tottenham Hotspur are hoping to sign Serhou Guirassy from VfB Stuttgart next month.

A report from Gazzetta dello Sport claims that the North London club will look to trigger his release clause in January.

Guirassy has been in splendid form for the German club this season scoring 19 goals across all competitions. He has a €17 million release clause in his contract and the Premier League side are keen to secure his signature.

Tottenham need to bring in attacking reinforcements and the 27-year-old could prove to be a quality acquisition. He is at the peak of his powers and he could make an immediate impact in the Premier League.

Tottenham will be without Son Heung-Min during the AFC Asian Cup and they will need to bring in someone who can lead the line for them and score goals consistently. The South Korean has carried the goal-scoring burden for Tottenham in the absence of Harry Kane the season.

Players like Richarlison have not been able to perform at a high level consistently and Spurs must bring in a quality striker.

The opportunity to move to the Premier League will be a tempting proposition for Guirassy and it remains to be seen whether he is keen on a move to Tottenham. He has been linked with other European clubs as well.

Manchester United are keen on signing him. Marcus Rashford and Rasmus Hojlund have not scored goals consistently this season and they are now looking at solutions to their attacking problems.

The €17 million release clause is quite reasonable for a player with his ability and Spurs will be desperate to get the deal across the line. The move could prove to be a real bargain if the 27-year-old manages to hit the ground running in the Premier League. He has the physical attributes to thrive in English football and Tottenham must look to do everything in their power to get the deal done.

The release clause is quite reasonable in today’s market and therefore a number of other clubs will be able to trigger it as well. Spurs must look to submit a lucrative contract proposal to the player in order to convince him to join them.
