West Ham United are reigniting their interest in Bundesliga striker Serhou Guirassy, according to reports. The move comes as the East London club look to find a long-term successor for their talismanic forward, Michail Antonio.

Antonio, a fan favourite for his tireless work rate and goalscoring prowess, is entering the twilight of his career. While his contributions are undeniable, West Ham recognise the need for a long-term solution upfront.

Enter Guirassy. The Guinean international has taken the German league by storm this season, bagging a staggering 28 goals and propelling his club, VfB Stuttgart, from relegation candidates to surprise Champions League qualifiers. His performances haven’t gone unnoticed, with West Ham joining the growing list of clubs circling the prolific striker.

One factor that could sweeten the deal for the Hammers is Guirassy’s relatively affordable release clause, set at a reported £15 million. However, West Ham face competition for his signature. Other clubs are likely to be attracted to his goalscoring record, while Stuttgart’s Champions League qualification could make them a more enticing proposition for the player himself.

West Ham’s new transfer chief, Tim Steidten, is a known admirer of Guirassy. He’ll be hoping that, along with the persuasive powers of new manager Julen Lopetegui and the allure of Premier League football, they can convince the striker to choose the London Stadium as his next destination.

The race for Guirassy’s signature is heating up, and West Ham will need to act fast if they are to secure the services of one of Europe’s most sought-after strikers.
