2. Serhou Guirassy

One thing the squad seriously lacks is, and I hate to bring up the age-old cliche, a 20 goal per season striker. Callum Wilson and Alexander Isak are both great strikers and they provide different traits - For example, Wilson is more of a goal scorer and Isak is more technically gifted. What we need, though, is a goal machine.

This is why it's great to see we are being linked with Serhou Guirassy, who is having a sublime goal scoring season in the Bundesliga this season. The Guinea international is the closest competitor to Harry Kane, so hopefully he could come to England in January and continue his immense goal scoring form.

As we mentioned yesterday, he is respected dearly at his club Stuttgart and they are doing everything to keep him. Although, when a Premier League club fighting to compete in the Champions League again come knocking, it's harder to turn down than many think. Dan Ashworth best have his convincing cap on in January, because we don't want to miss out on this bargain.
