The Daily Mail recently claimed that the Hammers want to sign the 23-year-old Stuttgart hitman.

David Moyes desperately needs to bolster his centre-forward ranks at the London Stadium this summer.

One player to have been linked with a move to West Ham is towering Stuttgart striker Sasa Kalajdzic.

Stuttgart make Sasa Kalajdzic decision that’s great for West Ham

BILD claims that the Bundesliga outfit will be forced to sell the 23-year-old forward this summer due to financial problems.

Kalajdzic is very good in the air and he possesses very impressive technique as well.

He racked up 16 goals and five assists in 33 games for Stuttgart this season. Considering the fact that he has made just 23 starts and played only 2140 minutes, that really is a very impressive return (Who Scored).

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.

Kalajdzic could be available for around £18 million this summer (TuttoJuve). And perhaps the Hammers could pick him up for even less than that amount considering the Bundesliga club’s apparent financial woes.

Anything around £18 million would represent great value for West Ham. Whilst he may not be the marquee name that Hammers fans expect, he would still do a very good job for David Moyes.

This surely would be one that we could get behind!
