West Ham are continuing to work on a potential deal to bring Serhou Guirassy to east London, it has been reported by ExWHUEmployee.

As has been stated for many weeks, the Guinean international striker is a target for our Hammers as the club look to add more firepower as we enter the 2nd half of a so-far positive season.

West Ham currently sit in 6th spot in the Premier League whilst also topping our group to advance to the knockout stages of the Europa League.

Guirassy, who currently plies his trade with Stuggart in the German Bundesliga, has been in stunning form so far this season with 17 goals already to his name.

Providing an update on the chase for the 6ft 2in forward, our club insider Ex stated that he’s still a top target, even with Guirassy set to feature in the AFCON for Guinea.

“As we have reported for some time, Serhou Guirassy is still a top target for the club this January,” said Ex on The West Ham Way Podcast.

“Tim Steidten has worked on this potential deal, although I must stress there are many others keen on the player.

“Not only has his performances attracted other top clubs to look at the player, but the fact he’s got a £15m release clause makes the competition for his signature fierce.

“Another stumbling block is the player is part of the Guinea side at the AFCON, although they are not expected to advance far due to a tough group they are in.”
