5 forwards Tottenham could sign, plus our top pick

There is very little doubt that Spurs will look to sign a new center-forward over the summer, so I will be looking at names that have been mentioned, the pros and cons, and who Spurs should or should not sign

Serhou Guirassy - pros. Guirassy has enjoyed a prolific season in Germany's top flight, scoring 26 goals in just 27 games. Whilst this is undoubtedly the best season of his career, this isn't just a flash in the pan. Guirassy scored 11 goals in 22 Bundesliga games last season as he helped Stuttgart avoid the drop. In the 21/22 Ligue 1 season, Guirassy scored 9 goals in just 7 starts for Rennes (SofaScore). Fabrizio Romano has reported that the Guinean striker has a 17.5m euro release clause this summer, making the transfer a lot less risky. Spurs, and other clubs could subsequently sign Guirassy as well as another Centre-Forward

Serhou Guirassy - cons. Even though I mentioned above that this isn't the first fruitful season of Guirassy's career, it is the first season where the striker has scored goals whilst playing the majority of minutes. As mentioned above, his previous two seasons were scored over much smaller sample sizes than this one. Will he be able to consistently score over sustained periods in a tougher league? In addition, like Toney, - Guirassy is 28, this is probably as good as he'll ever be, and for all we know he may have just had an outlier of a season. Guirassy has also been playing in a two-striker formation this season, so we have little to go off as to how he would survive leading the line on his own.

Verdict - sign, but as well as another striker rather than instead of.
