Widely considered a done deal, the transfer of Guinean international Serhou Guirassy to Borussia Dortmund has hit a snag.

Two weeks ago, Serhou Guirassy gave the green light for the activation of his release clause by Borussia Dortmund. After a stellar year at Stuttgart where he ended as the second top scorer in the Bundesliga with 28 goals in 28 matches, the former Rennes player seemed set to join the BVB for a modest sum of €17.5 million (his market value is estimated at €40 million on the specialized site Transfermarkt). He was expected to sign a five-year contract accompanied by a substantial signing bonus. Everything was set for a smooth transfer for the native of Arles. However, a significant issue has emerged.

Injured with the Guinea National Team

The 28-year-old failed the traditional medical examination, a prerequisite for signing his contract. “During a medical examination of Serhou Guirassy, an injury was discovered that requires further clarification,” announced the Black and Yellow club in a brief statement via its official X account on Wednesday.

Amid numerous questions, Fabrizio Romano provided some answers. According to the transfer market specialist, the striker suffered an injury during his last match with the Syli National on June 10, against Mozambique (0-1) as part of the fourth round of the 2026 World Cup qualifiers. The fifth-placed team in the last Bundesliga season wanted to ensure that the injury was not severe. This significant hiccup could potentially derail the transfer. To be continued…
