Manchester United have enquired about signing VfB Stuttgart striker Serhou Guirassy in the upcoming January window.
According to Florian Plettenberg, Man United can secure his services for less than €20 million.
AC Milan, Newcastle United, West Ham United and Roma are also interested in signing him.
Guirassy has been in great form this season, netting 18 goals and registering two assists in just 13 appearances.
Signing Serhou Guirassy for €20m is a no-brainer
Erik ten Hag wants to add more firepower to his attack that has underwhelmed this season.
Rasmus Hojlund joined United in a big-money move this summer, but he has yet to score in the Premier League.
Anthony Martial has scored just two goals across competitions. His off-the-ball work has been very poor and he is anonymous for large parts of the game.
Martial’s contract expires next summer, but United have the option to trigger a one-year extension.
However, they must sign Guirassy in January and let go of the Frenchman next summer.
Hojlund is still very young, and adding competition for the number nine spot is crucial.
Having Guirassy in the squad could bring out the best in the Denmark striker.
A €20m fee is peanuts for the Red Devils, considering their recent transfer outlay. One example is signing Antony from Ajax for a staggering €100m in 2022.
If Guirassy wants a move, the Red Devils must move quickly to grab his signature.
