Harry Kane's new strike partner? Bayern Munich eyeing move for Stuttgart sensation Serhou Guirassy amid Man Utd, Tottenham and Newcastle transfer interest

Bayern Munich are set to rival Manchester United, Newcastle and Tottenham for Stuttgart sensation Serhou Guirassy.

  • Bayern join Guirassy race
  • Premier League clubs also interested
  • Striker available at a tempting price

WHAT HAPPENED?

Guirassy has drawn a host of admirers after shining for Stuttgart in the Bundesliga. The 27-year-old has scored 17 goals in the German top flight, meaning only Harry Kane has outscored him in the league so far this season. Bayern have now joined the race for his signature and could be willing to pay the £15.1 million (€17.5/$19m) release clause in his contract, according to The Sun.

THE BIGGER PICTURE

Bayern aren't the only club keen on Guirassy. Premier League sides Manchester United, Newcastle and Tottenham are also interested as all three teams look to boost their attacking options in the January transfer window. Stuttgart have tried to offer Guirassy a new deal, with an increased release clause, but the contract offer was turned down by the forward.

WHAT GUIRASSY HAS SAID

Guirassy has spoken about his future and admits he could be tempted by a top club: “I cannot hide these things – everyone knows the Premier League is one of the most competitive leagues in the world. But at this time I don’t close any doors. There are some very big teams in Europe and it’s not focused only on the Premier League. At Stuttgart we have such a good team and everything is possible in football. If we can continue to be humble like we have been so far then we have a good chance."

WHAT'S NEXT?

Bayern boss Thomas Tuchel has confirmed the club are "working" on new signings in a bid to strengthen his squad and has hinted he wants to two players this winter. It remains to be seen if Bayern will go for Guirassy, but it's no surprise to see clubs queuing up for the striker after a prolific start to the season and with his release clause set at an attractive price.
