Chelsea they can sign 19 goal striker for right price – board informed


Stuttgart’s sporting director says the club want to keep CHELSEA target Serhou Guirassy this month – but did not rule out selling the forward if the right offer comes in

He already has 19 goals to his name in all competitions and has proved many people wrong that he is able to cut it in the Bundesliga at the highest level.

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.

West Ham and Manchester United have also been linked with the forward and now it has been revealed that the German side will allow him to depart the club should the right offer arrive this month.

“Our strategy is not to hope, fear and keep our fingers crossed,” Stuttgart chief Fabian Wohlgemuth told BW24.

“It’s not wishful thinking .We are constantly in contact, and if matters align that are favorable, then we will do it. If not, then not.

“We will keep our eyes and ears open. We’re not under any pressure, but the squad situation is a bit tense at the moment.

Speaking earlier in the season, Stuttgart manager Sebastian Hoeness did not rule out the prospect of losing Guirassy in the January window.

‘In football you can never exclude anything, so I won’t do that here either.

‘I think he feels really comfortable. Of course, I hope he stays with us for a long time, just has a good time with us. But with him and with the others, it is never possible to exclude things.’
