Wolves reach Sasa Kalajdzic transfer agreement with Stuttgart over £15m deal with 25-year-old signing five-year contract
WOLVERHAMPTON WANDERERS have reached an agreement to sign Sasa Kalajdzic.
VfB Stuttgart have agreed to sell the striker for a fee of £15.3million plus add-ons.
According to David Ornstein, Kalajdzic will sign a five-year contract with Wolves with an option for an additional year.
The Austrian has three assists in as many games for Stuttgart this season, but bagged six goals in 15 league games last season despite injuries severely hindering his campaign.
He stands at a staggering 6ft 6in and would likely be the long-term successor of Raul Jimenez, with the departure of Fabio Silva also meaning Wolves have no natural back-up.
The 25-year-old was linked with Manchester United earlier in the window.
However, former interim United boss Ralf Rangnick, who is now the Austrian national team coach warned him off of a move to Old Trafford.
Rangnick believed the forward would benefit from the stability of another season in the Bundesliga.
However, Kalajdzic clearly seems to believe his interests ahead of the World Cup would be better served by securing a transfer to Wolves.
The £15m Wolves will splash on the striker will see their spending climb to approximately £120m.

The club secured the permanent signature of Hwang Hee-Chan for roughly £15m earlier in the window, before splashing out on Goncalo Guedes, Nathan Collins and a club record deal for Matheus Nunes.
In terms of outgoings, Wolves have seen Morgan Gibbs-White depart to Nottingham Forest in a deal which could rise to just shy of £45m, while captain Conor Coady left on loan to Everton.
