Bundesliga striker is in talks with another club

A Bundesliga striker that Tottenham are interested in is reportedly in talks with another club.

European transfer specialist Fabrizio Romano reported in his Daily Briefing on Wednesday (Aug. 22) that UEFA Champions League finalists Borussia Dortmund have opened talks with Guinea international striker Serouane Girardi, 28, of Stuttgart.

Girassi, a teammate of Chung Woo-young (25), has been a revelation up front this season, scoring 30 goals and providing four assists in 30 appearances, including 28 goals and three assists in 28 league games. 바카라사이트 He is second in the Bundesliga in goals, behind only Harry Kane (Bayern Munich), who has scored 36 goals since joining the club this season.

Above all, Giroud is a striker that Spurs have been interested in since last year.

He has consistently scored double-digit goals every season since his days at Stade Rennes and appears to be entering his prime.

A prolific workhorse and a player who utilizes his 6-foot-5 frame to his advantage, Giroud is also known for his penetrating ability in counterattacking situations. His versatility is such that he can press forward and get involved in defense, making him a favorite of Spurs head coach Ange Postecoglou.

What’s more, Giroud is under contract until the summer of 2026, but has a buyout clause of £15 million, making him an affordable transfer. 메이저 토토사이트 That’s less than half the market price of a player valued at €40 million ($694 million).

The problem is that Spurs haven’t punched their ticket to the Champions League. Girassi’s club Stuttgart finished second to Leverkusen, who went undefeated and qualified for the Champions League. Fifth-place Dortmund also qualified for the expanded Champions League.

Tottenham started the season unbeaten in 10 games (8 wins, 2 draws) and led the league.

However, a rash of injuries exposed a thin squad and a steep drop in the standings, which ultimately resulted in them being relegated to the Europa League instead of the Champions League.

While Son Heung-min and Heurelisbon have filled the void left by Kane, the absence of a specialized striker has been felt, and in many ways, Giroud is the right frontline option for Tottenham. Giroud has been compared to German legend Mario Gomes.

“There was interest from England, Italy, and other places, but what I can say now is that Dortmund are serious about the deal,” Romano said. “They have been in contact with the player’s side and consider Giroud to be one of their top priorities in the summer transfer window.”

However, he also warned that “Dortmund will have to understand their budget, as they want to sign Ian Martial, 22, on loan from Chelsea, and also negotiate with Jadon Sancho, 24, on loan from Manchester United.”

Romano also added: “Giroud is one of Dortmund’s priorities. Contrary to what has been reported in France, I am not aware of any ongoing negotiations for Randal Colo Moani (26, Paris Saint-Germain). However, in the case of Girassi, 온라인카지노사이트 some discussions have already taken place and he is one of the players Dortmund are interested in.”

In the end, it could come down to whether Tottenham can offer Giroud the carrot of giving up the chance to play in the Champions League. If he does, the synergy with Son Heung-min would be unimaginable.
