Tottenham Hotspur might be interested in another Bundesliga striker after closing in a loan deal for Timo Werner.
Spurs have reached an agreement with RB Leipzig to sign the German international on loan, with an option to make the transfer permanent in the summer.
Sky Germany has reported a transfer fee of £15.5 million to secure Werner permanently at the end of the season. During the loan period, the Lilywhites will cover his wages, amounting to £4.3 million.
Despite signing a forward in the current transfer market, Spurs may continue their pursuit of another number 9.
VfB Stuttgart’s Serhou Guirassy is a potential striker Tottenham have been after.
Journalist Paul Brown has confirmed that a move to Spurs would interest the striker. He stated that the 27-year-old could be tempted to join Spurs in the January window as he would get a lot more playing time at the North London club.
Brown told GiveMeSport:
“I think there might be a lot of clubs coming in for him, and it’ll be interesting to see whether he decides he fancies a move or not, but I certainly think that going to Spurs would interest him.
“He’s likely to get a lot of playing time there, they seem to be a club going places, and it wouldn’t surprise me if they sneaked into the Champions League again this season if they can get some players back fit and keep their momentum going.
“So I think they’d be quite an attractive proposition for someone like Guirassy, and I’m pretty sure he is on their list.”
Manchester United are also said to be interested in him but as per a recent report, the player himself has expressed a strong desire to play for Tottenham.
Serhou Guirassy is under contract with Stuttgart until June 2026 and has been in outstanding form this season.
The 27-year-old has had a breakthrough in European football, having found the back of the net 19 times in only 16 appearances.
It seems unlikely that Spurs would bring another forward after the signing Timo Werner. The club could however contemplate revisiting the possibility in the summer if the striker remains available in the market.
