Stuttgart striker Sasa Kalajdzic has revealed that he would be tempted to leave the Bundesliga side were Liverpool to show an interest.
Discussing his future after enjoying a promising campaign in Germany, the 23-year-old admitted he would find it difficult to ignore the Reds due to a special connection he has with the club.
Speaking to Bild, Kalajdzic spoke of his admiration for Liverpool and how he would face a conundrum:
”I feel good overall at VfB, but that would be a really difficult decision because I like Liverpool very much. This club are just something special for me.”
The 6’5 Austrian striker has been drawing predictable comparisons to former Anfield favourite Peter Crouch whilst making a bright start to life in the Bundesliga, after helping Stuttgart to promotion last season, alongside Nat Phillips.
In 26 appearances across all competitions this season, the twice-capped Austria man has managed 13 goals and four assists – earning admiration from West Ham, Roma and RB Leipzig.
Jurgen Klopp is expected to oversee sweeping changes to his squad over the summer.
Although no current links have been founded, with serious questions marks hanging over the future of numerous fringe players such as Divock Origi, Xherdan Shaqiri and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to name but a few, there is every possibility Klopp will cast an eye over the performances of Kalajdzic, especially for the club the German manager supported.
A daunting figure for any defender, whilst Liverpool don’t necessarily operate with a focal point in attack, signing the Austrian could be part of a sea change at the Reds as Klopp looks to add more options and make the attack more unpredictable.
