West Ham United have been linked with yet another striker over the weekend.
West Ham eyeing a striker
West Ham sold Sebastien Haller to Ajax during the winter window.
This has, of course, reduced the Hammers’ options at centre-forward.
In turn, David Moyes and co. appeared to be in the market for some fresh legs up top throughout the January window.
In the end, though, West Ham didn’t bring in a new striker, leaving them rather short up top until at least the summer.
Following transfer deadline day, Moyes confirmed that his side had indeed been on the lookout for a new centre-forward, but explained:
“We were looking and we had money to spend. But we are trying not to go down the same path as before. I am not going to sign players who have come in to appease people.”
Despite the window now being closed, though, West Ham continued to be linked with strikers – including Blackburn hitman, Adam Armstrong.
West Ham linked with Sasa Kalajdzic
Now, though, yet another centre-forward has been linked with the London-based club.
That man is VFB Stuttgart forward, Sasa Kalajdzic.
Kalajdzic joined Stuttgart during 2019, departing his home country of Austria.
The German outfit are believed to have paid less than £3m to land the hitman, which does look to have been quite the bargain.
In 23 Bundesliga outings this season, the 23-year-old has already scored 12 and provided four assists.
And according to the Daily Mail, West Ham are among the clubs monitoring Kalajdzic.
The report adds that Stuttgart are willing to part with the hitman for around £15m, which could prove to be a serious bargain if Kalajdzic can maintain his current form next campaign.
The Hammers do look set to face competition for the Austrian, though, with the DM claiming RB Leipzig and Rome have also shown an interest in Kalajdzic.
