Serhou Guirassy, the talented striker plying his trade with VfB Stuttgart, emerges as a compelling signing for CHELSEA, according to reporter Iomie Stanley.

Reports in the media that we could try and make a move for Victor Osimhen in the January window, a man that they wanted to sign in the summer window and a striker that is easily regarded as one of the best in the game.

He has been in contract talks with Napoli for quite some time now, but has been unable to agree a new contract as the Italians are playing hard-ball and do not want to offer him the kind of deal that he feels he fully deserves.

However – it has been revealed in recent days that Osimhen is closing in on signing a new contract with Napoli – meaning that it will be very difficult for us to get a deal done for the man, and Guirassy is now reportedly on the list.

The 27-year-old has been one of the standout performers in the Bundesliga this season with 15 goals and is only behind Harry Kane in the scoring charts of the Bundesliga.

Couple that with his astonishingly low £15.1m release clause and it seems certain that offers from the club will arrive in the January window and take him to that next level in the game.

Reporter Iomie Stanley said: ‘One of the standout reasons for considering Guirassy as a valuable addition to Chelsea is his physical presence. Standing at 6 feet 2 inches tall, the French forward possesses an imposing stature that makes him a formidable force in aerial duels.

‘Chelsea, despite having a diverse attacking unit, lacks a towering striker who can be a reliable target for crosses and set-pieces. Guirassy’s ability to dominate in the air could provide the Blues with a different dimension in their attacking approach, especially when faced with well-organized defenses.

‘Guirassy’s goal-scoring record is another factor that makes him an attractive prospect for Chelsea. Known for his clinical finishing and composure in front of goal, the striker has consistently found the back of the net throughout his career. His capacity to score different types of goals – be it with his feet or head – aligns with Chelsea’s need for a versatile and reliable goal-scorer. In a league as competitive as the Premier League, having a player like Guirassy who can consistently convert chances into goals is a valuable asset.

Versatility is a key trait that Guirassy brings to the table. While primarily a center-forward, he is capable of playing in various attacking roles, including as a second striker or even on the flanks. This flexibility aligns with Chelsea’s tactical fluidity under Mauricio Pochettino, where players are often required to adapt to different positions and roles within the team.

‘Guirassy’s ability to operate in multiple attacking positions could provide Pochettino with tactical options, allowing the team to maintain unpredictability in its offensive strategies.

‘Additionally, Guirassy’s work rate and ability to contribute defensively make him a well-rounded player. His willingness to track back, press opponents, and link up with midfielders could make him an ideal fit for Pochettino’s system, where every player is expected to contribute both offensively and defensively.

‘In terms of age, Guirassy is entering the prime years of his career, making him a player with a balance of experience and potential for further improvement. CHELSEA, a club known for its strategic approach to transfers, could see Guirassy as a long-term investment capable of making an immediate impact.’
