Tottenham Hotspur: Spurs eye Sasa Kalajdzic

Tottenham Hotspur: Spurs eye Sasa Kalajdzic -Tottenham Hotspur News

Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly now eyeing up a bargain move to sign Sasa Kalajdzic this summer.

The Lowdown: Kane going?

It has been reported that the long-term future of Harry Kane at Spurs has been casted further into doubt by their 1-0 FA Cup exit away at Middlesbrough in midweek, and so the North London club may now already have to start looking for replacements for the England national team captain, or bring in significant reinforcements in order to try to persuade him to stay.

Kalajdzic is a fellow typical number nine, and while he has been hampered by injury problems this season, he has a strong history of being able to put the ball in the back of the net, and so it is no surprise to see Antonio Conte’s team linked with a move for him now.

The Latest: Tottenham lurking

As per Kicker, the Lilywhites are just one of a number of clubs eyeing a potential swoop for Kalajdzic in the summer, with West Ham United, AS Roma, RB Leipzig, Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich also being named as possible destinations.

He is ‘likely’ to leave Stuttgart at the end of the season and his current price tag of €20m (£16.5m) is expected to drop by ‘a lot’, as he is out of contract in 2023.

The Verdict: Bargain

If THFC can land Kalajdzic for anything less than £16.5m, it would be an absolute bargain.

Currently rated at £19.8m by Transfermarkt, he is also a full Austria international, and at 24 years of age, his stock is only going to rise.

Should Tottenham sign Kalajdzic?

Yes

No

He is already drawing comparisons to world superstar Erling Haaland, and Bundesliga journalist Stefan Bienkowski even thinks that he would be an ‘ideal‘ replacement for the Norway international at Dortmund.

Also described as an ‘Ibrahimovic-machine‘ in likening to the legendary Swede, Kalajdzic is a mammoth six-foot-seven-inches tall, but possesses a lot of technical qualities as well for a big man, according to Bundesliga expert Daniel Pinder.

Nonetheless, it is no surprise that Stuttgart coach Pellegrino Matarazzo considers him ‘invaluable‘, and he would certainly be worth every penny for Tottenham.
