Wolves have reportedly offered Stuttgart £12.6 million for striker Sasa Kalajdzic.
That’s according to Sport Bild’s chief reporter Tobi Altschäffl, who says that the German club want more.
It was reported yesterday that Wolves had entered into negotiations with Stuttgart.
Wanderers are keen to snap up the 15-cap Austria international, as they seek to add a goalscorer to their ranks.
Wolves have started the new season with the same struggles they had last term, and very much need a new centre-forward to come in and compete with Raul Jimenez.
Kalajdzic has hit 24 goals in 60 games for Stuttgart since joining them in 2019, and has also laid on 12 assists for teammates, with three of those coming in the three games he’s played so far this season.
It is thought that personal terms should not be an issue for Wolves (via Express & Star).
It would seem at the moment the clubs are a bit far apart in terms of the transfer fee.
It was claimed yesterday that Stuttgart were looking for around £21 million for their star.
Kalajdzic only has a year left on his contract now, and Wolves perhaps feel that £21 million is too high a price for a player who can leave for nothing next year.
Wolves should bid slightly more for Sasa Kalajdzic, but £21 million price tag may be too high
Wolves are clearly quite keen on Kalajdzic, with Stuttgart’s sporting director Sven Mislintat admitting that there is interest from Wanderers.
Now we have a claim that Wolves have made a bid.
Wolves should probably up their offer a bit to try and test Stuttgart’s resolve. But arguably, that £21 million asking price is a bit too high.
The player is into the final year of his contract and is not looking to extend.
That puts pressure on Stuttgart, so Wolves should definitely seek to get him for less.
