L’Équipe are reporting that Everton hope to complete a deal for Rennes’ Serhou Guirassy (26) before the end of the week, with the player keen on the move.
Everton have made Guirassy their priority and are now looking to wrap up the deal for the Guinea international. The Merseyside club are “hoping to finalise the deal before the end of the week.” It is unclear whether the Rennes forward will move on loan or on a permanent deal. It was earlier reported by Fabrice Hawkins that Everton’s initial offer was for a loan with an option to buy, although the Breton club favoured a permanent transfer.
Either way, Guirassy now looks to be nearing a move to Everton, who look to have fought off competition, notably from Strasbourg, to sign the player.
It looks set to be a case of one in and one out at Rennes. The news of Guirassy’s departure comes just as Arnaud Kalimuendo (20) officially completed his transfer to Rennes from PSG.
