Sky Sports reporter Kaveh Solhekol has declared in his latest weekly column that Chelsea are amongst the Premier League clubs that are keeping tabs on Amiens forward Serhou Guirassy.

Kaveh Solhekol claims that West Ham, Brighton and Bournemouth were eyeing a move for the ace in the winter transfer windows.

Those Premier League sides will now be kicking themselves with Solhekol reporting that Tottenham Hotspur scouted the ace during his side’s recent 4-4 draw against Paris Saint-Germain.

Chelsea are also keeping a close eye on the centre forward.

Guirassy actually bagged two goals against the Ligue 1 champions with the scouts in attendance. It’s claimed that the 23-year-old would be available for £18m this summer.

Serhou Guirassy has been one of the few bright sparks in an Amiens side that are second to bottom in Ligue 1.

The France youth international has bagged eight goals and registered one assist in 21 matches in the French top-flight this campaign.

Both Spurs and Chelsea need a quality backup forward.

The Blues need someone else to challenge England international Tammy Abraham for the No.9 spot, with Michy Batshuayi and Olivier Giroud looking unconvincing in their bit-part roles this campaign.

Spurs on the other hand, certainly need another option to upfront as a backup to Harry Kane.

The Three Lions’ captain is currently sidelined with an injury, this massive blow has led to Jose Mourinho deploying wide forwards Heung-Min Son and Lucas Moura up top.
