Sven Mislintat confirms Wolves interest in Sasa Kalajdzic

Stuttgart’s sporting director Sven Mislintat has confirmed that there is interest from England in striker Sasa Kalajdzic, with Wolves one of the sides keen.

It was reported yesterday that Wolves and the German club had entered into negotiations over the 25-year-old.

Wolves are looking to bolster their squad with another centre-forward before the window closes.

The team has scored just one goal so far this season.

Bruno Lage has just Raul Jimenez to call on at the moment, with the Mexican having only just returned from injury.

Kalajdzic is one of several names Wolves are looking at, and Stuttgart apparently want around £21 million for the Austria international.

Sky Germany reported Florian Plettenburg went as far as to claim that there is a verbal agreement in principle between Wolves and Stuttgart.

Mislintat has now commented on the situation, confirming that there is interest from the Molineux club, but playing down how advanced it is at this stage.

He said (as quoted by Stuttgarter Nachrichten): “There are now actually the first interests from England, the Wolves are part of it. This is not really concrete at the present time.”

Wolves in for Sasa Kalajdzic, and hopefully a deal gets done

So it looks like there is concrete interest from Wolves in Kalajdzic following Mislintat’s comments.

But it would appear at the moment the situation is now quite as advanced as reports were making out yesterday.

But hopefully Wanderers can soon make a breakthrough.

Kalajdzic would make for a really good addition to the squad, and provide strong competition for Raul Jimenez.

The 6ft 7in star has the potential to rally take to the Premier League and its physical nature.
