Exclusive: Newcastle make official approach for Bundesliga goalscorer second to Harry Kane.



Newcastle’s official approach for the Bundesliga’s second-leading scorer, behind only Harry Kane, is exclusive.TEAMtalk can confirm that Newcastle have initiated negotiations with the players’ representatives and Stuttgart regarding the terms of a transfer agreement for Serhou Guirassy.


In January, Newcastle will be extremely active as they attempt to bolster their roster and address a multitude of injuries and suspensions. The club is monitoring midfielders and forwards, and they have initiated negotiations with key targets including Guirassy.


This season, the 27-year-old has been phenomenal for the Bundesliga club, accumulating an astounding 15 goals in nine league appearances. Haryana Spurs’ Harry Kane leads all scorers in the Bundesliga with seventeen goals scored in 17 appearances for Bayern Munich.


A release clause of merely £15 million has rendered him a feasible candidate for several clubs, among others. Sources with close ties to the player anticipate a domino effect of proposals following the club’s money-on-the-table move and initial move.Newcastle have virtually completed the transfer, having informed Guirassy’s agents and the German club verbally that they are willing to fully pay the release clause and acquire him during the winter transfer window at St. James’s Park.


Additionally, the Guinea international reportedly desires to test himself at the highest level feasible by competing in the Premier League. Newcastle would not pursue this action unless they have complete faith in his readiness to make his Newcastle black-and-white stripes debut.


Newcastle is pursuing a Champions League opponent as manager Gordon Howe pursues a versatile defender.


Following a loan stint at the club, the forward joined Stuttgart in the summer of 2022 for £7.5 million; he is under contract with the club until 2026. At the time, many viewed this as a risk due to the four-year duration of the agreement.


However, Stuttgart is now perceived to be at a disadvantage due to the release clause, as the £15 million offered for one of Europe’s leading goal scorers is considered a bargain.


According to multiple sources, Guirassy is expected to depart the club in January, with Newcastle being the first club to formally announce his departure.To strengthen their roster for the latter half of the season, the Magpies are heavily weighing the possibility of acquiring a loanee attacker in January. Twenty-eight months remain on Calvert-Lewin’s contract with Goodison Park.


Reportedly, Calvert-Lewin is resolved to assist Everton in overcoming their current challenges, which include a 10-point deduction and the possibility of relegation.
