The representatives of Serhou Guirassy are increasingly confident that the striker will join a Premier League side during the January transfer window, sources have confirmed to 90min.

Guirassy has become one of the stories of the 2023/24 season having scored 16 goals in 11 matches across all competitions so far for Stuttgart. His Bundesliga tally of 15 has only been bettered by Bayern Munich's Harry Kane, who has grabbed 18 since his summer move from Tottenham Hotspur.

90min reported in October that Guirassy's contract with Stuttgart contains a release clause worth roughly £15.2m, while scouts from Bournemouth, Brentford, Crystal Palace and West Ham United had made trips to Germany to watch over him earlier in the season.

That same quartet of clubs have been presented with the opportunity to sign Guirassy and have continued to monitor his performances, though he has also been linked with a blockbuster move to Manchester United in recent days.

90min understands United - in addition to Arsenal, Everton, Newcastle, Tottenham and Wolves - have all been contacted by intermediaries regarding Guirassy's situation and his camp believe all of those clubs have some level of interest, though nothing is concrete at this stage.

Any potential mid-season move could be complicated by Guirassy's likely involvement with Guinea at the Africa Cup of Nations, which begins on January 13. Competing countries are allowed to call players into training camp two weeks prior to the tournament.

Guirassy turns 28 in March but is enjoying a late-season resurgence following fruitful spells in France with Amiens and Reims before joining Stuttgart on an initial loan at the start of the 2022/23 campaign.
