Arsenal want to sign Stuttgart striker Serhou Guirassy

Arsenal are still involved in the race to sign Stuttgart striker Serhou Guirassy, according to Sky Sport Germany journalist Florian Plettenberg.

The Gunners are in the market for a new striker, and they have been linked with several players including Viktor Gyokeres and Victor Osimhen.

Guirassy is another player on their radar. Borussia Dortmund reportedly are optimistic about signing the 28-year-old, but there is no complete agreement.

This is likely to open the door for other admirers including Arsenal. The Guinea international is expected to make a decision over his future within the next few days.

Guirassy would be a good bargain signing for Arsenal

Guirassy was sensational for Stuttgart in the recent campaign. He netted 30 goals from as many appearances as they qualified for the Champions League.

The former Rennes man had the best season of his career and he could be signed on the cheap as his contract contains a £17 million release clause.

Guirassy would be a good bargain signing for the Gunners, but there is a risk attached judging by the previous history of Bundesliga signings.

Several high-profile players, including Timo Werner, Jadon Sancho and Kai Havertz, have struggled after switching from Bundesliga to the Premier League.


Havertz has found his feet with the Gunners, but it is clear that the higher intensity of the division has hampered the performances of signings from the Bundesliga.

Guirassy would be a good acquisition to provide back-up in the number nine role, but he is unlikely to become Arsenal’s first-choice striker.

Before last season, Guirassy scored a maximum of 14 goals in a single campaign.
