West Ham are reportedly in talks with French top-flight outfit Ameins over a deal for attacker Serhou Guirassy – and some of the club’s supporters on Twitter are not pleased by the speculation.
According to Sky Sports, the Hammers are in discussions with Ameins over a loan deal for the 23-year-old.
It is understood that the Ligue 1 side are prepared to allow his exit on loan with the option to buy permanently in the summer.
The Daily Mail have previously reported that the French striker has been offered to Brighton already, while Leicester City and Aston Villa have also been interested.
A selection of West Ham supporters on social media are not impressed by links to Guirassy, who has very little experience at the elite level.
The young striker has four goals in 17 appearances for Amiens this season and is battling a relegation fight in France.
He also previously played for FC Koln in Germany, where he managed nine goals in 45 senior matches for them.
Hammers manager David Moyes is currently fighting against relegation this season at the London Stadium and his team are only above the drop zone on goal difference.
They could certainly do with some more attacking ammunition, but Guirassy would be a risky addition that may need time to adapt.
Here are some West Ham fans on Guirassy:
His goal records are not great we need some now who can score a bag of goals and get us out of this mess

Let’s hope this Guirassy is another Sakho. Can’t see it personally. If anything this seems desperate but fingers crossed.
