Arsenal eyeing summer move for 24-year-old Amiens striker

By | May 20, 2020

Arsenal have reportedly identified Amiens forward Serhou Guirassy as a possible transfer target for the upcoming summer transfer window.

The 24-year-old forward has only joined Amiens from Koln earlier last summer and impressed during the 2019-20 season, founding back of the net nine times and creating one more in 23 Ligue 1 appearences.

However, his fine form was not enough to save Amiens from suffering relegation to the France second top-tier, with the decision to end the campaign early condemning them to the drop as they sat 19th in standings, four points adrift of a possible safe place.

The Daily Mail claims that Guirassy could now be available for a cut-price deal, making him an even more attractive option for the Gunners whose transfer plans have been adversely affected by the coronavirus pandemic.

However, the North London club are expected to face competition from Premier League rivals Bournemouth and West Ham United with both of whom have also been keeping tabs on the Frenchman.

Arsenal are in the market for a new forward due to uncertainty over the futures of Gabon international forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and French attacker Alexandre Lacazette, the latter of whom is likely to be disciplined by the team for off-field actions this week
