TOP STORY: BVB favorites to sign Guirassy

Borussia Dortmund are interested in a summer move for VfB Stuttgart striker Serhou Guirassy, according to Sky Sports Deutschland.

The 28-year-old has been in superb form this season, with his tally of 25 goals in 26 Bundesliga matches helping Stuttgart to their position of third in the table. That has also resulted in the Guinea international receiving plenty of attention from clubs both within the Bundesliga and abroad.

Dortmund is one of those clubs, as they are hoping to strengthen their frontline due to question marks surrounding the futures of Youssoufa Moukoko and Sébastien Haller. Guirassy has been made a priority by the Champions League semifinalists is reportedly open to a move to Signal Iduna Park.

There has even been an initial exchange between BVB and Guirassy’s representatives ahead of a possible transfer. Despite those discussions, a final decision has not been reached yet and will only be made once the season has come to an end.

Stuttgart CEO Alexander Wehrle remains optimistic that the club will be able to convince Guirassy to stay with them past the summer, despite his low release clause of €20 million further adding to the already high interest in him. Arsenal, Manchester United, Newcastle United and Bayern Munich have all been previously linked with the striker.

AC Milan left-back Theo Hernández has agreed to join Bayern Munich, according to Mundo Deportivo, which states that the Bavarian club now needs settle on a transfer fee with the Rossoneri. Signing the 26-year-old would increase the likelihood of Alphonso Davies leaving the Bundesliga heavyweights, with the 23-year-old likely to join Real Madrid.

Diario Sport says that Barcelona are keen to sign a winger in the summer, with Athletic Club speedster Nico Williams top of their shortlist. Blaugrana coach Xavi Hernandez also likes Napoli star Khvicha Kvaratskhelia, but over €100m would be required to sign him, while RB Leipzig ace Dani Olmo is also seen as an alternative. Williams, however, remains most likely to make the move to Catalonia, with Barca ready to trigger his €50m release clause.

Chelsea are stepping up their interest in Shakhtar Donetsk attacking midfielder Heorhii Sudakov, according to The Daily Mail, which adds that the Blues have held discussions with the 21-year-old’s representatives. Arsenal, Manchester City and Liverpool have all checked on the Ukraine international’s progress this term, while there is also interest from Serie A.

Internazionale have not yet produced a real contract renewal offer to Denzel Dumfries and could look to offload the wing-back for €20m to avoid losing him for free in 2025, reports Calciomercato. Fiorentina star Michael Kayode is among the players who could be a possible replacement, but Inter reportedly won’t move for the 19-year-old yet as he is considered too young and not ready for Simone Inzaghi’s style of play.

Florian Plettenberg reports that Mainz midfielder Nadiem Amiri will be available as a free agent if the club are relegated this season, while he has a release clause worth under €5m if they stay in the Bundesliga. With the Nullfünfer currently occupying the relegation play-off place, Stuttgart and Eintracht Frankfurt are both watching the 27-year-old’s situation closely.
