Chelsea keeping close eye on 23-year-old Ligue 1 ace

Sky Sports reporter Kaveh Solhekol has stated in his latest weekly column that Chelsea are amongst the PL clubs that are keeping tabs on Amiens forward Serhou Guirassy.

Solhekol claims that West Ham United, Bournemouth and Brighton & Hove Albion were eyeing a move for the player in the January transfer windows.

Those Premier League outfits will now be kicking themselves with Kaveh reporting that Tottenham scouted the star during his side’s recent 4-4 draw against Paris Saint-Germain.

Chelsea are also keeping tabs on the centre forward. Serhou actually bagged two goals against the Ligue 1 giants with the scouts in attendance. It’s claimed that the 23-year-old star would be available for £18 million this summer.

Serhou has been one of the few bright sparks in an Amiens side that are second to bottom in the top-flight.

The France youth international has scored eight goals and registered one assist in 21 appearances in France’s top tier this season.

Both the Blues and Spurs are in need of a quality backup forward.

The Blues need someone else to challenge striker Tammy Abraham for the No.9 spot, with Michy Batshuayi and Olivier Giroud looking unconvincing in their bit-part roles this campaign.

Spurs on the other hand surely need another option to up front as a backup to England international Harry Kane.

The Three Lions’ captain is currently sidelined with an injury, this huge blow has led to Jose Mourinho deploying wide attackers Lucas Moura and Heung-Min Son up top.
