Tottenham could seal striker deal imminently after Jose Mourinho moan

Tottenham can wrap up a deal for Amiens forward Serhou Guirassy if they act decisively, it’s claimed.

The French side are embroiled in a relegation scrap and currently sit 19th in Ligue 1.

Despite their shocking form, Guirassy is highly rated in the top tier across the English Channel.

The 23-year-old is viewed as a rising star and has managed seven goals in 27 games after initially joining Amiens on loan.

According to The Sun , Amiens are willing to sanction a summer transfer now if it means getting some certainty.

They want to plan for the future and a guaranteed sale for £20m-rated Guirassy would enable that.

However, Spurs will face stiff competition for his signature.

West Ham are also keen to get a deal done and have already held talks with their counterparts in France.

Spurs chief Jose Mourinho publicly bemoaned his lack of attacking options after his side slumped to a 2-1 defeat against Chelsea.

"I think you are going to be very bored with me, because I think I'm going to be very repetitive,” he told the BBC.

“I’m going to say exactly the same words I said against Leipzig.

"I'm very proud of the players – they gave absolutely everything.

“We don't have a striker. Our attacking players are not strikers and are in huge levels of fatigue, so very, very difficult for us.

“No tactical problems, [we were] completely in control of the space, punished by a couple of individual mistakes.

"A defeat is a defeat, but the good thing is, in the last seconds the players were still fighting for a result and that for me is a very important thing.

"In the last part of the game when Chelsea was scared of the 2-1 we didn't have that presence, that power, we didn't have that to do more than what we did."
