Multiple sources claim Guirassy, ​​not Ajorque, will sign

In VfB Stuttgart deadline day ‘Tale of two Strikers’, Germany’s leading football publication and its main sports tabloid are currently reporting that it is Sehrou Guirassy, ​​not Ludovic Ajorque, who will sign for the Swabians .

Kicker Magazine, Sport Bild and German hub transfermarkt are all now claiming there is a more likely candidate among the two swapped names seemingly set to replace Sasa Kalajdzic on deadline day. Despite reports from German broadcaster Sport1’s Patrick Berger that Ludovic Ajorque was in Stuttgart for a medical, it should be Sehrou Guirassy who signs for the BaWü club.
It would seem that Ajorque is not, in fact, in Stuttgart. Berger’s Twitter profile has been bombarded with photos of the active French striker in Strasbourg’s current training session. Many German football media seized on this to discredit the story and state that Ajorque will not move to Stuttgart or Hertha.

Guirassy is a Bundesliga veteran who spent three seasons with 1. FC Köln between 2016 and 2019. The 26-year-old scored nine goals for die Geißböcke during two top-flight seasons and his final year with the club in the second division. The Stade Rennes player is reportedly still in transit to the Bundesrepublik for his medical, which means confirmation could take some time.
