West Ham could end Haller misery with swoop for Serhou Guirassy

West Ham’s fortunes in front of goal were perhaps why they found themselves embroiled in a relegation battle last season, but their fortunes could be about to change if reports are to be believed…

What’s the word?

According to Foot Mercato, Amiens striker Serhou Guirassy is of interest to the Hammers but they face one major stumbling block.

It’s claimed that the 24-year-old has his sights set on a move to Ligue 1 rivals Stade Rennes but they are yet to pay the €20m (£18m) asking price.

The likes of newly promoted West Brom and Crystal Palace have also been linked with a move for the 6 foot 2 colossus.

Husillos’ Haller blow

If the Irons can swoop in at the last minute and convince Guirassy to make the switch to the Premier League, something he’s previously stated that he wants, then those at the top of the club can lessen the impact of Mario Husillos’ blunder.

West Ham clinched Sebastian Haller for a club-record £45m fee from Frankfurt, paying him in the region of £100k-per-week. So far, he’s struggled to adapt to the physicality of the English top-flight, scoring just seven goals.

It means the Hammers have blown around £50.5m in total since his arrival last July, that won’t please the London Stadium faithful, who have been on the Frenchman’s back many times this term.

West Ham's first win of the season came in a victory over Watford - but what was the score?

Guirassy is described as a “tall and powerful” classic target man with a “killer instinct” in front of goal and despite his “imposing” physical frame, he’s still got bags of pace.

After bagging nine goals in a side that faced relegation from Ligue 1, the Irons could get themselves a genuine option to show where Haller has been going wrong.

David Moyes can’t go into next season relying on Haller and Michail Antonio.
