West Ham United target Sasa Kalajdzic has admitted it is ‘nice’ to see clubs linked with a move for him this summer.
Kalajdzic has been one of the breakout stars in the Bundesliga this season, with 14 goals and four assists to his name in the league so far.
The 23-year-old has already been likened to Erling Haaland, and those numbers and a tag like that have earned him attention from the Premier League.
Several sides in England have all been linked with a move but none more so than West Ham, with it felt David Moyes is determined to add a striker to his squad this summer.
Rumours about a potential move to the London Stadium first emerged last month, with the last stating that West Ham were looking at Kalajdzic and considering a potential €20-25m deal.
The links are likely to continue throughout the summer if the forward continues to score as he has, but he insists he is not going ‘crazy’ about any transfer talk.
“A lot of what is written about me in the media is a nice confirmation,” he told SportBILD.
“I don’t fight against it. It’s great to have my achievements recognised. It’s a compliment to be linked with other clubs – but that’s all, I don’t drive myself crazy about it.
“I don’t like to speculate too much. With one move, all plans can be over; things can go down the drain again: I’ve had a broken metatarsal and a torn cruciate ligament in my still-young career.
“That’s why I don’t want to commit myself. It’s nice that there are rumours and a lot of talk about me.
“But in good Austrian: If you fly too high, you’ll quickly fall on your head! Or, so that SPORT BILD readers understand even better: If you fly too high, then you quickly fall on your face.”
