Man united set to complete the signing of £40m striker who has 10 league goals this season – Erik Ten Hag wants another striker to replace Hujlund.

United is nearing completion of the acquisition of a £40 million striker with ten league goals this season. An alternative striker is what Erik Ten Hag desires to supplant Hujlund.Manchester United is currently seeking to bolster their offensive capabilities, and Serhou Guirassy has been a subject of considerable interest for some time.According to reports from last month, the Red Devils are making every effort to acquire the Guinean international during the January transfer window.The Athletic reports that the Old Trafford club might consider making an investment this month to acquire the African forward.Todo Fichajes, a Spanish source, exclusively reports that Manchester United are now prepared to negotiate a £15.1 million (17.5 million euros) transfer fee with Stuttgart in exchange for Guirassy during the winter transfer window.The forward’s contract includes a release clause of £15.1 million, and the media outlet reports that United are committed to fulfilling the obligation.

Guirassy has ranked among the current season’s leading goal scorers. Seventeen goals have been scored in his merely twelve appearances for the German Bundesliga.

 

In addition, the 27-year-old has contributed directly to three goals in two DFB-Pokal appearances to date.

 

Thus, the £15.1 million valuation is, in all truthfulness, a tremendous market opportunity, which Manchester United must seize in order to bolster its striking department, given that Rasmus Hojlund, a summer acquisition, has been unsuccessful in the Premier League thus far.

 

The Guinean international has been named to the squad for the upcoming African Cup of Nations; therefore, he will be unavailable this month, even if Ten Hag were to acquire him.

 

Do you believe Manchester United should pay £15.1 million to acquire Serhou Guirassy?
