Chelsea eyeing surprise deal for Bundesliga striker?

Serhou Guirassy news

Guirassy to Chelsea soon?

Chelsea are reportedly set to compete with Borussia Dortmund for the signing of Stuttgart striker Serhou Guirassy this summer.

The Blues are keen on landing a new marksman in the current transfer window, but they are reluctant to spend big due to PSR limits.

The club were initially interested in signing Aston Villa's Jhon Duran, but a deal has not materialised due to the striker's wage demands.

They have since tried to sign Samu Omorodion from Atletico for €40m, but the La Liga outfit won't sell him for less than €80m.

As a result, the club have now turned their attention to landing Guirassy, who was fantastic for Stuttgart last term with 30 goals.

The Guinean star has a low release clause of €20 million in his deal and he is prepared to assess all options on the table for him.

Chelsea could prove a lucrative destination for the striker, considering he has the opportunity to move to the English capital.
