The forward has scored 9 goals for Amiens this season before the club were relegated following Ligue 1’s announcement to end the season.

Guirassy’s agent Mark McKay has tipped his client for a move saying : “A number of clubs in England and across Europe have shown an interest in Serhou after he performed so well for Amiens.

“In the current climate due to the impact of the coronavirus pandemic clubs might not be able to pay huge transfer fees like they used to and in that respect Serhou could prove to be a bargain in this window.

“Serhou’s preference has always been to play in the English Premier League, but Amiens will evaluate all offers that come in for him and make a decision from there.”

Elsewhere according to Le 10 Sport, Arsenal are also vying to sign Borussia Monchengladbach centre-back Nico Elvedi.
