That’s according to Sport BILD journalist Marcel Reif who claimed live on air that clear agreements between the Hammers, Stuttgart and the 24-year-old striker have been made.

Signing a top-class striker before the start of the 2022/23 season will be the main priority for West Ham manager David Moyes.
Michail Antonio simply cannot be expected to do everything on his own once again next season.
Signing an elite centre-forward before the new season begins will be crucial to the Hammers’ hopes of achieving success on all fronts.
And it seems as though Moyes is closing in on bringing in some real competition for Antonio…
Sasa Kalajdzic is joining West Ham
Sport BILD journalist Marcel Reif has just claimed live on air that an agreement has been made for the transfer of the Austria International from Stuttgart to the Hammers this summer.
What a superb addition the 24-year-old will be to Moyes’s ranks at the London Stadium, if Reif’s claim is true of course.
The 24-year-old stands at 6ft 7in tall, so it’s easy to see why David Moyes might want to sign him what with the emphasis he places on set-pieces.
The Scot tried and failed to bring the Stuttgart ace to West Ham last summer (The Daily Mail).
Sasa Kalajdzic joining West Ham would make us a real threat in the final third next season.
We think that Kalajdzic could be a very useful addition for West Ham, especially if we sign him for somewhere in the region of £15-18 million.
The Austrian has bagged 36 goals and 21 assists in 92 career games to date and he has been capped 13 times by his country (Transfermarkt).
He has missed most of this season due to a serious shoulder injury but has returned to action recently. And he bagged six goals and two assists in 15 Bundesliga outings last term (Transfermarkt).
Kalajdzic is extremely good in the air and he possesses very impressive technique as well.
Standing at 6ft 7in tall, the Austria international would provide West Ham with a great focal point to our attacking play. He would certainly give us a completely different option through the middle.
And with Sport Bild journalist Marcel Reif claiming that Sasa Kalajdzic is joining West Ham, it seems as though our summer transfer window is really beginning to heat up.
