200cm man-mountain issues Liverpool come-and-get-me plea

Giant Stuttgart striker Sasa Kalajdzic has issued a come-and-get-me plea to Liverpool after declaring his love for the Premier League champions.

Kalajdzic stands at an incredible 6ft 7in tall (200cm) and is one of the most towering attackers in European football.

He is enjoying an excellent season with Stuttgart, scoring 12 Bundesliga goals – 3.5 goals more than his Expected Goals (xG) total of 8.5.

The Austria international also has three assists, with his exploits helping Stuttgart challenge for a Europa League spot.

Kalajdzic’s form has led to admiring glances from bigger teams and he has admitted that one Premier League giant has particularly caught his eye.

“I feel completely at home at VfB, but it would be a really tough decision because I really like Liverpool,” the 23-year-old told Bild.

“This club is simply special to me. When I was a kid, I saw the Champions League final in 2005 when Liverpool came back from 3-0 down against Milan to win. That gripped me.

“The last time I went to a Liverpool game with my brother, I really kitted myself out: I bought myself a scarf, jersey, cap and a mug.”

Kalajdzic will next be in action on Sunday afternoon when Stuttgart play Hoffenheim.

That will free him up to watch Liverpool play on Monday evening when they travel to Molinieux to take on Wolves.

Liverpool have been struggling badly for goals in 2021, leading to calls that they must sign a top forward this summer.
