According to Fussball Transfers, Tottenham Hotspur have already knocked on Stuttgart’s door to enquire about striker Sasa Kalajdzic.
Kalajdzic has caught the eye in German football this season after a cruciate ligament injury put him out of action for a large part of the 2019/20 season, which was his first campaign at Stuttgart.
The lanky centre-forward has proven his worth for the Bundesliga side this season, having scored 15 times and provided four assists so far this season.
The Daily Mail reported earlier this week that Tottenham have decided not to take up the £36m option they have to buy Carlos Vinicius at the end of the season and to pursue Kalajdzic instead.
Fussball Transfers have now also backed up the claim that the Austrian international is on the North Londoners’ radar.
The report suggests that Spurs and RB Leipzig have both made contact regarding the 23-year-old on the back of his impressive performances this season.
While Kalajdzic is said to be happy at Stuttgart, it is revealed that the striker’s future is very much up in the air ahead of the transfer window.

Kalajdzic fits the profile of the player we are likely to go for if we decide not to take up the option to sign Vinicius. The Austrian will likely be relatively cheap and would perhaps be more content with playing a bit-part role than the likes of Danny Ings or Patson Daka would be. His height and aerial ability would make him a useful plan B to have on the bench.
