Towering striker Sasa Kalajdzic is reportedly open to joining West Ham United from Stuttgart in the summer transfer window.
That’s according to a report from German publication Kicker who claim that Hammers boss David Moyes could pick up the 6ft 7in centre-forward for around €20 million (£17.2 million) this summer.

Signing a top-class centre-forward will be Moyes’s main priority this summer.
West Ham still have Michail Antonio as our only recognised centre-forward. And let’s be honest here, the 32-year-old isn’t a natural striker either!
That situation obviously needs to be addressed in the summer and according to a report from Germany, Moyes is on the case…
Kalajdzic open to West Ham move
Kicker claims that the Hammers are still very much interested in signing the Austria international before the start of next season.
And it is suggested that the towering striker would not be averse to moving to the London Stadium from Stuttgart.
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).
We think that Kalajdzic could be a very useful addition for West Ham, especially if we can sign him for somewhere in the region of £15-18 million.
The Austrian has bagged 35 goals and 21 assists in 91 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 in jury but has returned to action recently. And he has five goals and two assists to his name in 14 Bundesliga outings this 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.
The fact that we could pick him up for around £17 million makes a move to sign him this summer seem like a no-brainer for West Ham.
And we would be more than happy if Kalajdzic rocked up at West Ham before the start of next season.
