West Ham Unitedare leading the race to sign in-demand Amiens striker Serhou Guirassy, according to The Sun.
The 23-year-old notched a brace against French giants PSG last weekend as his struggling club managed to pull off an impressive 4-4 draw against the heavyweights.
It currently looks uncertain as to whether West Ham will be in the Championship or Premier League next season.
The Hammers will need to beef up their squad regardless of which division they are in.
If West Ham are in the Championship, it will make it very difficult for them to sign Guirassy as he will almost certainly attract offers from clubs playing top-flight football across Europe’s top five leagues.
West Ham definitely need to invest in new strikers next summer as they have once again lacked a prolific player to lead the line.
Sebastien Haller has struggled for consistency this season as he has scored just six goals from 24 appearances in the top-flight.
Repeated transfer window failings
With the resources and tradition that they have, West Ham should be challenging for European football.
The fact that they are once again hovering on the bottom half of the standings proves that the upper management structures are making poor decisions.
The London club needs to seriously re-think how they approach the transfer market next summer to avoid new players failing to adapt to their club.
Guirassy has plenty of potential but again it would remain to be seen whether he could be the attacking player to have West Ham pushing for European qualification.
