Big Blues decision opens door for Arsenal to try and sign 30-goal striker

It has been claimed that Chelsea have made the decision to not pursue Serhou Guirassy – giving Arsenal a boost.

According to Sky Sports Germany, ARSENAL , Chelsea, and AC Milan are ‘still involved’ in the race for Serhou Guirassy. The Stuttgart striker has been heavily linked with a move to Borussia Dortmund lately, but there has also been talk that he would like to stay put

Guirassy enjoyed a prolific season in front of goal after joining Stuttgart on a permanent basis 12 months ago, netting 30 times in 30 appearances to help the club finish second in the Bundesliga table behind Xabi Alonso’s undefeated Bayer Leverkusen.

It’s claimed Stuttgart bosses have ‘tried everything’ to dissuade Guirassy from leaving but the Guinea international has a release clause in his contract allowing him to move on for as little as €18-20million (£15-17m).

The report states that Bayern Munich and Chelsea are now ‘out of the running’ for Guirassy’s signature and the attacker has a decision to make between Dortmund, Milan and Arsenal.

Guirassy’s current contract with Stuttgart, which he signed last summer, runs through to June 2026.

Speaking to Sky Germany last month, Stuttgart’s chairman, Alexander Wehrle, played down the growing speculation surrounding Guirassy’s future, insisting the attacker was ‘really comfortable’.

‘It was already clear last summer that he was leaving and I already heard in the winter where he is said to have already signed,’ Wehrle told Sky Germany.

‘The fact is: He feels really comfortable, he is an undisputed leader for the first time in his career, he knows what he has in Sebastian Hoeness and the coaching team.
