Spurs: Ange could sign £17m finisher who’s outperforming Maddison
Although Ange Postecoglou’s tenure at Tottenham Hotspur has gotten off to a good start, he won’t be one to sit back and take it easy.
Back-to-backThe Australian, who urged his supporters to let their fantasies run wild after their strong start to the new season, said that the Premier League Manager of the Month honors meant nothing to him: “Never, never, never, let them leave and enjoy themselves. My job is not to deflate people’s balloons, as I have already stated. It’s part of the fun of being a supporter to let them get excited and ahead of themselves.
Much of this fine form is owed to the transfers made over a revolutionary summer, with James Maddison and Micky van de Ven having combined at both ends of the pitch to help spearhead their run to the top of the league.
One in-form ace is already on the Australian’s want list, so it appears that they may be planning to look ahead to January.
In January, who might Spurs sign?
The former Leicester City creator cost £40 million, and the Dutch defender cost Wolfsburg an additional £43 million, so it is obvious that this administration may be more free-spending in an effort to resurrect them as contenders. Daniel Levy is hoping to do this by injecting enough energy into the team.
Therefore, even if Serhou Guirassy has only recently moved, potentially inflating his potential price tag even further, if that is what Postecoglou wants, there is a good chance they will acquire him.
At least that is what writer Dean Jones anticipates after saying on the Ranks FC Podcast earlier in the week that the Lilywhites were keeping an eye on the Stuttgart striker whose £17 million release clause will become activated in the coming summer.
Even though it would be a remarkable achievement on its own, the £100 million they got after the fact for the sale of Harry Kane last summer—money that was never really spent—makes the transfer seem even more possible. It will take a special footballer to possibly succeed the England international, but given the scorching form the 27-year-old is in Germany, there is a good chance that he may pull it off if he can carry that form over to England.
What was Harry Kane’s impact at Spurs?
Even if his departure is still recent in memory, it is always important to note how excellent the 30-year-old was for Lilywhites after breaking through the academy as an unheard-of teenager.
The 86-cap superstar eventually rose to become the club’s and his country’s all-time best scorer, overcoming legends like Jimmy Greaves and Wayne Rooney in the process. Few could have possibly guessed the heights that the player would reach.
He left north London with a mouthwatering total of 278 goals and 64 assists, and he actually reached double digits in the Premier League for nine straight seasons.
As a result, it should not be surprising that pundit Jamie O’Hara hurried to laud him before quitting, declaring on talkSPORT (23 March, 10.30 pm), “I’ll put it out there; I think he is the greatest striker English football has ever produced.”
In the sport of football, he is indestructible. Harry Kane will be remembered for his accomplishments for Tottenham, for England, and in the Premier League forever.
He was a visionary and a goal-scoring leader, but such skills are no longer necessary. Maddison has more than adequately filled the first position; however, Guirassy may now be able to fill the second.
Who is Serhou Guirassy?
No player in any of the top five European leagues has more league goals than the France-born finisher, who has 13 Bundesliga goals in just seven appearances.
That is the standard that the ruthless forward is upholding, and as a result, he has unavoidably become a target for praise after such a spellbinding start to the season that is eerily similar to Spurs’. Serhou is a youthful player and he also makes errors on the field, as Amiens SC coach Luke Elsner previously observed. But in several games, he has been quite helpful.

The fact that he kept going even if his match didn’t turn out as he had hoped to is something I found to be quite admirable. When he lost the ball, he attempted to make up for it by making defensive plays. Even though he doesn’t always succeed, he has an impeccable mentality.
Postecoglou would appreciate that kind of approach since he would love to combine Maddison with such a hot-shot forward.
The 26-year-old wizard, who only arrived to north London in the summer, has adapted to his new surroundings like a duck to water. According to Sofascore, his seven goal contributions in only eight games is a commendable performance, and his 3.3 critical passes and 2.4 ball recoveries per game are more evidence of this.
It should therefore come as no surprise that former Chelsea star Joe Cole tried to applaud such great business: “The more I think about it, he could be the best signing of the summer. Particularly given the way Ange plays, I am beyond happy for him. Glenn Hoddle, Paul Gascoigne, and Luka Modric are some examples of players who have filled the position for Spurs. He is shrewd and cunning, as evidenced by Ange handing him the VC. The leader James is.
Despite the fact that he is undoubtedly the Premier League’s best player right now, Guirassy is easily outperforming him, according to Sofascore, since he also boasts 2.1 critical passes per game and a truly amazing goal-conversion percentage of 42%.
The international player for Guinea looks to possess both the skill and the inventiveness that earned Kane praise. He might not only assist in converting the many scoring possibilities that Maddison creates, but also provide the midfielder with some extra scoring chances.
The Stuttgart star might provide them the extra boost they need to get across the finish line and realize the ambitious goals Postecoglou wants his supporters to hold onto.
