According to an exclusive report from Eurosport, West Ham could face strong competition from Tottenham for Stuttgart striker Sasa Kalajdzic this summer.
Hammers boss David Moyes will be desperate to bring an established striker to the London Stadium this summer.
And it seems as though Spurs boss Jose Mourinho is in a similar position at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
West Ham and Tottenham in battle for Sasa Kalajdzic?
The two London clubs could be chasing the same player this summer.
The Daily Mail recently claimed that the Hammers want to sign the 23-year-old Stuttgart hitman.
And now Eurosport are suggesting that Spurs are plotting a move to sign the ‘Austrian Peter Crouch’ as well.
Sasa Kalajdzic a useful addition for either West Ham or Tottenham
The Austrian has enjoyed a successful campaign this season.
He has racked up 15 goals and four assists in 30 games for Stuttgart so far. Considering the fact that he has made just 16 starts and played only 1885 minutes, that really is a very impressive return (Transfermarkt).
Kalajdzic is very good in the air and he possesses very impressive technique as well.
Eurosport claims that the Austrian will cost around £15 million this summer.
That is tremendous value for a player with Kalajdzic’s quality.
Whether West Ham or Tottenham will win the race for his signature remains to be seen.
Much will depend on which club out of the two finishes higher in the league table this season.
It could be argued that the Hammers need a centre-forward more than Spurs do. But if Mourinho genuinely wants Kalajdzic, Moyes might just have his work cut-out this summer.
