Sasa Kalajdzic has admitted he is open to the idea of ​​a move Manchester United who have recently been linked with the Stuttgart striker.

Erik ten Hag is working hard to identify transfer targets for his new club and one area that needs strengthening is the No 9 position with Edinson Cavani leaving, Antony Martial’s future unclear and Marcus Rashford with injuries and his form is struggling.

Cristiano Ronaldo is still firing on all cylinders, of course, but he can’t be expected to play every game and Kicker are now reporting that Kalajdzic has emerged as the perfect ‘Plan B’ option for the Red Devils and for just 17 Millions of pounds could be obtainable.

The 24-year-old is currently on international duty with Austria and is being looked after by the former United interim boss Ralf Rangnick, and was asked about speculation linking him to a transfer.

“Nothing is impossible, I’m open to everything,” he said.

“There will be no rush order. It’s about finding what’s best for me.

“I don’t know where the journey is going. Lots of things going on in the background.’

At 1.97m, Kalajdzic is the tallest player in the Bundesliga and his physique and style of play have been compared to former England striker Peter Crouch.

He first came to prominence in the 2020/21 season when he scored 17 goals for Stuttgart but injuries severely limited his playing time for much of last season.

However, a return of six goals in his last 11 games for the Bundesliga side helped them scrape survival and proved that when fit Kalajdzic is a very dangerous striker.

United could face competition for his signature, however, as the Austrian is also linked with Borussia Dortmund, who are looking for a player to fill the void left by prolific striker Erling Haaland, who is moving to Manchester City.
