West Ham ‘monitoring’ Stuttgart striker Sasa Kalajdzic

West Ham United have been linked with yet another attacker this weekend.

West Ham eyeing a striker

West Ham sold Sebastien Haller to Ajax during the winter window.

This has, of course, reduced the Hammers’ options at centre-forward.

In turn, David Moyes and co. appeared to be in the market for some fresh legs up top throughout the January window.

The Londoners were linked with Arkadiusz Milik (who has since joined Marseille), Sevilla hitman Youssef En-Nesyri and Celtic’s Odsonne Edouard.

In the end, though, West Ham didn’t bring in a new striker, leaving them rather short up top until at least the summer.

Following transfer deadline day, Moyes confirmed that his side had indeed been on the lookout for a new centre-forward, but explained:

“We were looking and we had money to spend. But we are trying not to go down the same path as before. I am not going to sign players who have come in to appease people.”

Despite the window now being closed, though, West Ham have continued to be linked with potential additions up top – including Blackburn hitman Adam Armstrong.

West Ham linked with Sasa Kalajdzic

And now, yet another centre-forward has been linked with the London-based club.

That man is VFB Stuttgart star Sasa Kalajdzic.

Kalajdzic joined Stuttgart in 2019, after departing his home country of Austria.

The German outfit are believed to have paid less than £3m to land the hitman, which has since proven quite the bargain.

In 23 Bundesliga outings this season, the 23-year-old has already scored 12 goals, as well as providing four assists.

And, according to the Daily Mail, West Ham are among the clubs monitoring Kalajdzic.

The report adds that Stuttgart are willing to part with the hitman for around £15m, which could prove to be a serious bargain if Kalajdzic can maintain his current form next season.

The Hammers face competition for the Austrian, though, with it claimed that RB Leipzig and Roma have both also expressed an interest in Kalajdzic.
