Tottenham Hotspur could have a second chance at signing striker Sasa Kalajdzic, with a big offer likely to tempt Stuttgart into a sale.
That’s according to Fussball Transfers, who look at the player and his future today as he battles back from a long-term injury.
Kalajdzic has been absent for all but one game this season, with a shoulder injury, meaning he has been missing since August.
He’s been ‘working hard’ to return since then, and a return to the pitch is ‘not far off’ which is good news for Stuttgart in the short term as they’ve desperately missed his goalscoring ability.
However, his long-term future is still to be determined. Kalajdzic’s current contract expires in 2023, and that means Stuttgart need to get a new deal signed or be forced to sell him next summer.
Either he extends, or he leaves for a ‘handsome fee’, and both are distinct possibilities at this moment in time.
A decision has yet to be made, and there have been no ‘concrete talks’ with VfB either, but there is a feeling they could struggle in any attempt to keep the striker.
Last summer, Tottenham were one of several clubs who ‘knocked on the door’ for the striker, and there is a feeling that they could come back again.
Indeed, if an ‘ambitious club’ were to make a ‘tempting offer’ for the forward, then Stuttgart would face ‘big problems’ in keeping one of their star men.
The door, then, is for open for Tottenham to make their move should they wish, although they will need a big enough sum to convince their German counterparts into a sale.
