Wolves transfer news: Sasa Kalajdzic to have Wolves medical today

Wolves are close to making their fourth new signing of the summer transfer window, with Sasa Kalajdzic set to undergo his medical today.

The striker has travelled to England after Wanderers finally made a breakthrough in negotiations with Stuttgart.

According to Fabrizio Romano, the club will pay €18 million up front (£15.3 million) for the Austria international.

Add-ons could take the total cost of the deal to over €20 million (£17 million).

The player will sign a contract until 2027, and Wolves will supposedly have the option of a further year.

It is the news many Wolves fans have been waiting for, with goalscoring again proving problematic for Wolves so far in 2022/23.

Wolves have scored just two goals in the Premier League in their four games so far.

Raul Jimenez has returned to action now following the knee injury he picked up in pre-season.

There is a feeling that he needs competition from another striker with quality – and Kalajdzic should provide that.

He has scored 24 goals in 60 games for Stuttgart, and should help provide more of a cutting edge for Bruno Lage’s side.

It remains to be seen if Wolves can move quickly and wrap up the deal in time for Kalajdzic to feature against Bournemouth on Wednesday night.

Failing that, he will likely make his debut against Southampton at Molineux on Saturday.

So it looks as though Wolves have gotten their man, after only being linked with Kalajdzic for a brief period of time.

This is a great signing by Wolves, with Kalajdzic someone who can provide a strong alternative to Jimenez.

The star is obviously great in the air being 6ft 7in tall. But by many accounts he’s pretty good technically, too.

In the end, Wolves are paying a fair whack at £17 million all-in for someone who is in the final year of his contract.

But he’s someone Wanderers do really need to bring in, and overpaying slightly is perhaps necessary here.
