Reported West Ham United summer target, Sasa Kalajdzic, has opened up on his future at Bundesliga side VfB Stuttgart.
So far this season, Kalajdzic has been in extremely fine form over his 25 league appearances for Pellegrino Matarazzo’s side, scoring 13 goals and providing three assists, as well as averaging a WhoScored match rating of 6.99 – ranking him as the club’s fifth-best performer in the German top flight.
As a result of his impressive displays, it has been reported that GSB are keen on bringing the £6.3 million-rated centre-forward to east London in the summer transfer window, however, in recent comments made to Kicker, as cited by Fussball Transfers (via Sport Witness), the 23-year-old appeared to suggest he is more than happy at Stuttgart.
He said: “I am happy to be with VfB because I like to play at VfB and know that I am valued. I am in Stuttgart with head and heart.”

Transfer Tavern Take
The comments of Kalajdzic, who is reported to be valued between €20-25 million (£17.2-21.5 million) by Stuttgart, are likely to come as a blow to David Moyes and his side, as the 57-year-old has still yet to replace Sebastien Haller, who left West Ham for Ajax in the January window.
Indeed, with Michail Antonio being the Scot’s only option as a senior centre-forward in his first-team squad, the position is somewhere it would appear crucial for the Hammers to invest in this summer, although, a move for Kalajdzic appears, at present, to be rather unlikely.
