The Hammers have allegedly been quoted £15 million for the giant 6ft 7 striker (Daily Mail).

David Moyes has Michail Antonio as his only recognised centre-forward option at the London Stadium at the moment.

The Scot can play the likes of Jarrod Bowen and Jesse Lingard as false nines of course. He absolutely must sign at least one established striker this summer.

And it seems as though West Ham could be targeting a raid on the Bundesliga.

The Daily Mail claims that the Hammers are eyeing a summer bid to sign Stuttgart hitman Sasa Kalajdzic.

The 23-year-old striker is a target man type striker.

Standing at 6ft 7 in, it is easy to see why he is so good in the air. The Austria international possesses very good technique as well, however.

West Ham wise to move for Sasa Kalajdzic?

He has scored 12 goals in 23 Bundesliga games for Stuttgart so far this season. Considering the fact that he has made just 13 starts and played only 1272 minutes, that really is a very impressive return (Who Scored).

In those outings, the 23-year-old has also racked up three assists and has averaged 2.1 shots per game, He has won an average of 2.7 aerial duals per match (Who Scored).

£15 million seems like very decent value for Kalajdzic.

The only red flag will be the fact that recent imports from the Bundesliga have struggled in the Premier League. Signing the Austria international will represent some kind of risk for West Ham.

We think this is one that David Moyes should push on with, however.

The 6ft 7in striker could be a real hit at the London Stadium.
