Several top teams in the English Premier League have set their sights on Stuttgart striker Gilaschi, according to reports from English media outlet HITC. Clubs like Manchester United and Tottenham are closely monitoring the situation of the Guinea-French forward, who has been a standout performer in the Bundesliga this season.

During the winter transfer window, Gilaschi, who has a £15 million release clause in his contract, caught the interest of Arsenal and Chelsea. However, he decided to stay at Stuttgart and has since had a stellar season, scoring 24 goals in the league and a total of 26 across all competitions, putting him in contention for the Bundesliga Silver Boot.

With the summer approaching, Gilaschi's contract still contains a release clause, and he could be looking for a new challenge away from the German club.

It is reported that top Premier League clubs like Manchester United and Tottenham have been scouting Gilaschi closely. Additionally, teams like Newcastle, Crystal Palace, Wolves, and West Ham have also shown interest in the Guinean forward.

In a crucial league game against Borussia Dortmund last week, Gilaschi scored the only goal, catching the attention of many scouts in the stands with his impressive performance. Clubs in Italy's Serie A and Spain's La Liga, such as AC Milan, are also reportedly interested in signing Gilaschi, while Stuttgart are keen on extending his contract.

Gilaschi's stats for the season show that he has scored 26 goals and provided 2 assists across all competitions. His market value is estimated to be €40 million, but his release clause could be less than €20 million.

Standing at 187cm tall, the 28-year-old Gilaschi is a right-footed striker. In the current season, he has made 22 league appearances, starting 19 times and averaging 76 minutes per game, with 24 goals and 1 assist to his name.

The striker has attempted 71 shots, including 4 headers, 3 left-footed goals, and 17 right-footed goals. He has also missed out on 13 clear-cut chances. Gilaschi averages 41.2 touches per game, has won 2 penalties, created 10 big chances, delivered 42 key passes, and has an 81% passing accuracy.

In terms of attacking contributions, he completes 0.6 successful dribbles per game with a 42% success rate, is fouled 2 times per game, and has a 52% success rate in high ball duels.
