Tottenham Hotspur keeping tabs on Stuttgart striker Sasa Kalajdzic 

Tottenham have conducted plenty of business this summer already and there’s still plenty left to do by the looks of it. A striker is on Fabio Paratici’s wish-list with a host of options lined up and the latest name to have emerged is Stuttgart’s Sasa Kalajdzic

The deal however is going to be easier said than done. According to Transfermarkt’s Manuel Veth (h/t the Sun), Spurs are only one of four Premier League clubs vying for Kalajdzic. 

That’s not all, because Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund also seem to be in the mix. Dortmund’s interest however seems to be waning since they are closing in on Ajax’s Sebastien Haller.

Stuttgart striker Sasa Kalajdzic is on Tottenham’s radar.

During his 3-year spell thus far at the Mercedes Benz Arena, Kalajdzic has scored 24 goals and provided nine assists in 57 games for the club. He has also earned 15 caps for Austria since making his senior national team debut in October 2020, scoring four goals

Tottenham however don’t seem to be in a rush, with the immediate priorities understood to be a right-back and centre-back. 

The Lilywhites have been pushing to get a deal for Middlesbrough fullback Djed Spence over the line, while the likes of Gleison Bremer, Milan Skriniar and Alessandro Bastoni remain centre-back targets. 

Should Spurs strongly consider Kalajdzic? 

Tottenham have quite a stacked frontline, one of the best in the Premier League currently for sure. Harry Kane and Heung-min Son have the capacity to score 40+ goals in a season just between them. 

Any new striker arriving would likely be brought in only to provide cover to Kane and Son. That is a role that not many are willing to take, especially a 24-year-old who is looking to find his peak level. 

At 6ft 7ins tall, Kalajdzic is also quite a towering presence inside the box. Whip in a cross, aim it right, and the Austrian will most definitely score.

Kalajdzic seems like a decent option to consider but a lot also depends on the money involved. For a backup striker, Spurs are not very likely to shell out an extraordinary amount.

With so many clubs in the mix for Kalajdzic, it most definitely will cost a premium amount to land him, so Spurs will be wary of that. 

Don’t expect them to make a formal offer before any of the other clubs do, but Spurs are going to keep a close eye for sure.
