Report: Spurs are challenging Man United, Chelsea for Stuttgart’s £23M striker

By Eddie Razo -

Tottenham Hotspur wants to improve their forward group this summer, and there have been plenty of candidates surfacing in the rumor mill. The north London club likely wants scoring depth behind Harry Kane and Son Heung-min and the latest name to fill that need is VfB Stuttgart’s Sasa Kalajdzic. 

According to Manuel Veth, Spurs, alongside Premier League rivals Manchester United, Leicester City, and Chelsea are reportedly vying for the Austria international. 

Kalajdzic made 15 appearances for the Bundesliga side scoring six goals and recording two assists. Since arriving at Stuttgart, the 24-year-old has scored 24 goals in 57 appearances. Also, with one more year on his deal, this would be the ideal time to sell if he won’t sign a contract extension. 

When it comes to a possible fee that Spurs might have to pay if they do indeed pursue the striker this summer, it would be around £23-million, per Transfermarkt. However, the price could go up a little with several Premier League clubs reportedly in the mix.

What have Levy apologists got to do with it?! Everything actually, because that was the basis of my comment. Perhaps try and read rather than knee jerking and purely trying to pick arguments.

I’m not ‘accusing’ you of anything, what like a crime? My comment was referring to ‘Levy apologists’ and yes my own words, But I was obviously referring nobody else. However you replied by writing ‘we were here you muppet’ (nice). So I assumed that ‘we’ meant we Levy apologists. What else did you mean if you actually read my comment, before snapping back in your usual, unpleasant and overly aggressive fashion?

I can only respond to what I read, it would be helpful if you did the same…

I didn’t say that Pochettino didn’t want Ndombele, the point I’m making is that he wasn’t the sole driver behind his transfer, mangers rarely are. Had Pochettino had time with him things might have turned out a little better with him, we’ll never know because Levy broke up up the fundamental logic of the deal by sacking Pochettino and bringing in Jose.

By the way, LoCeldo was signed permanently under Jose, explain that one. A; if you think he was a ‘Poch signing’ and B; if you think Jose was in charge of that decision. Keep it going, if you think Jose wanted Bale, Rodon, PEH as his first or even third choices. Can’t make one rule for one coach and another for another, but I suspect you will continue to try. Suits the narrative I suspect…

You surely know what I mean. When they signed for the club it was on his watch. He wanted him, targeted him and he was the one who convinced him to come.. Same as the signings now are on Contes watch.. That was one single presser in 6 years. He signed loads before and after. That was a broken Botch and the post match presser after losing another final. He was done at that point. He had no money or players for 17 months and just lost again… He was then backed with club record breaking money and look what happened..
He told us repeatedly after he arrived that no one came or left the club without his nod. 27 in and nearly 40 out.. I’ll start digging for his interviews if i have to prove it.
He said it after we signed Sissoko, Wanyama, Son plus more.
He also had the power to shift players quickly. Remember Andros Townsend didn’t last 2 seconds.

What have Levy apologists got to do with anything?
I left a question mark after. So no that was no admission..
So you’re now accusing me of being what exactly? I’m not an apologist, nor a fan of Levy.
Neither do I hate or despise the man as you seem to. Everyone’s human and makes mistakes. He’s done a lot wrong, but he’s also done a lot right.
I wouldn’t waste years of my life deriding the man like you do.
It’s boring. It achieves nothing.
Right now I’m happy because he’s brought Conte in. Best move he could have done.

Hang on a second please Sir… I don’t pick on people.. Easty bites a lot but doesn’t like to be bitten back.
My info is not off beam either.
I’m pretty sure you also reported Ndom as a Botch target at the time.
It was reported in the daily express with Ndombeles own words… “It was Pochettino who convinced me to come to North London. He looked in to my eyes and said come with me. I know I can make you better”

Now we were also scouting Bissouma at the same time. He went to Brighton for 15 million.

How was Ndombele not a Poch signing?
If it was Levy then he would have gone for the cheap punt wouldn’t he?

Can I have Tappas email please H?
I can see myself getting a red here soon and I’d like to get in touch with the guy.

Sheringham played in the Championship aged 42 for Colchester Utd 19 times before hanging up his boots. Before then he was warming the West Ham bench as a player/coach, no mean feat but in his ‘prime’? Really?

Who was manager when LoCelso’s option to make the deal permanent was triggered? I’d better tell you, just in case you attempt to make something else up; Pochettino had been gone for about six months by that point and Jose was in the hot seat. Who to blame in this case? Botchy Botch? Jose?

Face it, the managers don’t decide how £50m gets spent, if you think they do then you’re living in a parallel universe, of your own design…

It was the same under Arry. He wanted a major say over transfers if he was to take the job. When Levy gets desperate he ditches all the nonsense that led to the problems in order to get a fixer in, in this case Conte. As soon as the club are operating at the right income stream levels, he tries to cut down on expenses in order to drive up the profit margin. That’s when the punt signings and illogical football stuff happens, it’s because it’s got nothing to do with football and another version of it will return sooner or later…

James Milner is a decent servant, but he hasn’t been a pivotal player for Liverpool for about 4 seasons now. We need players that improve us significantly over several seasons, declining players is a short term but handy fix, but nothing more.

You’re the one who keeps referring to a coach that left the club a couple years ago now. Perhaps his relative, yet trophy less success (consistently highest league placing over four seasons of any manager in our history) irks you somewhat? Goodness knows why, but anyway sticking pins in you’re ‘Botchy’ voodoo doll might be your thing, but it ain’t mine along with most other people. Nobody’s bothered about your Pochettino dislike, we all know now. So what? Who cares?

Silva is a CB who mostly stands around, Ronaldo notoriously doesn’t run when out of possession nor does he track back, Milner has become so slow and immobile he had to foul every time his opposing FB/winger runs at him – it was the joke of the week once this year on the highlight shows, Fernandino sat as a DM and now can’t even do that having been second choice DM and fill-in CB for two years now. You’re not making a strong case with these examples.

When you’re talking about age and Longevity in the game then we’ve already seen them all. Positions are irrelevent.. From Goalies to wingers and strikers we see golden oldies..

Except that he IS different, because of the demands of the positions he plays. None of your examples play as a wingback or winger. A DM sitter, an immobile midfielder/fill-in fullback, a CB…playing those positions in your mid/late 30s is a whole different kettle of fish to playing as a wingback.

It’s apples to oranges, comparing a CB and a long ball era second striker to a modern Wingback/ winger. You won’t see Thiago Silva sprinting up and down for 95min and running 10-11km per match as a CB.

Loads of players have kept their standards past 35.. Thiago Silva, Moutinho, Ashley young, Ronaldo, Fernandinho, James Milner all late 30s. 37 years old in fact and still balling in the premier league.. Sheringham was still up there in his 40s.
All players begin their decline at 30 years old, it’s all maintenance and decline from 30.. But everyone’s genetics are different so some go on longer than others… Perisic could have 5 years left and join the list of players I mentioned above it’s quite feasible because he’s an intelligent player. Time will tell.

His facts are right!
Who knows or cares if Botch wanted him at PSG!
Forza was talking about Spurs obviously…
I just read your first 4 lines, and your tiny last paragraph… I missed out your 4 or 5 paragraphs in the middle because I know it’s just waffle…
Botch is a loser, he’s unemployed again, he must be approaching 40 odd million in the bank from his managing years so far.. Yet he’s won fcuk all… And no the Ligue 1 and the french cup doesn’t count. They are a certainty for PSG.
You used to tell me that Botch would win everything if he had top players… Well he had Mbappe, Neymar and Messi up top.. He botched it with them. He’s a second rate manager who can’t handle superstars.. His tactics are limited.. He doesn’t know how to win.
And of course we are still suffering from his signings 3 years later.. The likes of Ndom and Gio were why Botch was sacked.

5 years plus? How many players stay at their peak approaching 40? Ryan Giggs came off the bench for 20 mins here and there towards the end at Utd when he was about 37-38 but I can’t think of any players still being pivotal at the top level past about 34. I like him but at 33, he’s about to decline, hopefully we’ll get a decent season or two out of him…

You wasting your time trying to argue with people who have a tendency to be negative ,I am on this blog from 2006 and they come in and go. There was also quotes from former top players saying that Perisic leaving Serie A is a great loss. If Conte wanted him he is worth it. People complain for the sake of it,its not even a constructive argument. Leave them,they will jump on the bandwagon once he plays a few games. It’s all good having a difference in opinion, but when your opinion does not support the good of the team then its complaining for the sake of it.

Do you know for sure that Poch PSG wanted him on loan, and if so why not? Who knows, had Poch stayed rather than sacking him and trying to make it work under a completely different style of coach in Jose, Ndombele might have even come good or become at least a useful player. Jose just doesn’t take raw talent and develop it, unfortunately Levy was either too thick or pig ignorant to understand this glaringly obvious dimension. Why do you defend all this dysfunction with such vigour, can’t you see what’s been in front of you for 23 years?

Why wouldn’t the manager have met him before he transferred to the club, isn’t this standard? He fitted Levy’s profile of the Bale, Modric ultra talented young player to be developed into a player that goes to Madrid in three or four years at their peak age of 26, thus generating a huge profit.

The manager has to go along with the policy of the club, Poch would have looked at him with Hitchen and Levy and seen a lot of raw talent. His talent is undeniable, but the crucial point here is that the club’s scouting of him was poor overall. Poch was busy running the first team, the finer details of his attitude and professionalism, fitness levels falls under scouting pure and simple. If Hitchen wasn’t doing his job properly, then what about the muppet that employed him and kept him in that role for several years?

You’re determined to blame Poch for anything and everything that doesn’t seem to be working out. LoCelso, the other one you seem so keen to blame Poch for, had his transfer made permanent several months after Jose arrived. Until that point he wasn’t even a Spurs player, he was on loan. How do you explain that one by blaming Poch, Einstein?

It shows that players at Spurs are not signed on the decision of any manager, not Jose and not Poch and probably not even Conte. It’s done by ‘commitee’, as it is at most clubs. The manager/coach will be present at meetings but they don’t get the final say on these things, so sorry to disappoint you.

Come back when you’ve got your facts right and then a rational discussion can be embarked upon, because assumptions are in fact, ALL I’m hearing from you…

Agreed. He is a player Conte wanted and we shall stand with his decision. Conte has yet to prove us wrong with any of his decisions. Every other club ,sports pundit etc are trembling and taking notice of what spurs are doing. Not one of the supposedly football experts who are normally anti-spurs have questioned the signing of Perisic. Italian league is tough.the tackles fly in and tactics matter

Every team that wins something has a few winners in the team. Perisic is one of them. He keeps fit and was one of the best players in Serie A for a long time . He is no different then Milner ,Thiago from Chelsea,Fernandino who was at Man city . They are all older than him. He still has decent pace and is very good technically. We will get atleast 2 seasons at the highest level from him. He walks into the side. A great signing.

You spewing this nonsense that Ndombele was not requested by Poch. Go online and look at the quotes from Nodombele why he signed for spurs ,Poch met him. If I could post links on here I would . Ndombele was a Poch signing the bald bastard used any excuse to not spend ,you think he would go out and decide to break our transfer record all on his own. Psg under Poch were linked with a loan for Ndombele for a long time untill the deal broke down because Levy tried to insert an obligation to buy. Psg would never be linked with him if Poch was not there. So your argument about Poch not wanting him is proven wrong. Im not basing what I am saying of heresay or assumptions, the facts are here for all to see.

This is from the DM. Perisic chose to leave Inter also due to the misunderstandings he had with CEO Giuseppe Marotta and the club’s hierarchy.
Delays in a new contract offer deeply wounded the pride of Perisic, who has always felt fundamental in the team’s victories in the last two years. 
The disrespectful treatment was not appreciated by Perisic, who declared himself dissatisfied with the situation during his last interview at the club.
After Inter’s victory in the Italian Cup against Juventus he told SportMediaset: ‘For important players you don’t have to wait long’. 
Perisic would have gladly avoided being in such a situation but his pride was stronger than his desire to stay at Inter.

Every player is different.. Teddy Sheringham was still prime in to his late 30s. Thiago Silva is in his late 30s now again still in his prime.
Perisic could start declining now, or in a years time, or in 2 years, or in 5 years plus.. Everyone’s genetics are different. Rooney and Owen were in full decline at just 30..
Perisic is an intelligent player and he doesn’t look like he’s in decline physically yet so I reckon he’s got 2 or 3 years left in him at least.

This is not a stellar transfer window so far whatsoever. Yes both Perisic and Bissouma are likely to get into the current side at the expense of Sessingnon and PEH I would imagine. However, I doubt Liverpool, Citeh or even Cheatski are particularly quaking in their boots at the business we’ve done so far…

Bissouma is a logical signing, the kind we hardly ever make, as you say. We need a defender so Rodon will most probably be moved on, was he ‘a Jose signing’ because Jose happened to be manager at the time? Probably not, a bit like Stevie B and Sessingnon and Wobbly Belly under Poch. This was Hitchen and Levy looking for the next Modric or Bale mega-profit turner. Punts, but pricey ones at that, not proven and unfussy deals like Bissouma.

Correct, the official line is that some of it ‘could’ be used on the team. It’s very much business as usual this transfer window and unless they shift several off the books, there will be no big spending. Jose was at the club when LoCelso was made permanent, so despite this perception that any manager since Arry has the slightest say over signings is a warped one. Levy’s chaotic running of the football, along with his micromanagement of finances has landed us with little scope to do much at all…

Young Marquinhos is in, Fabio Vieira will be announced this week, and the news wires are saying that a deal for Raphinha is close to completion. Feeding off scraps eh? Compare that with a new back-up keeper, a 33 year-old midfielder, and a cut-price (admittedly good) Brighton midfielder. Levy is hardly splashing the cash is he. Where are the so called ‘marquee’ signings Conte must have been promised? I don’t think Conte will be signing a contract extension any time soon at this rate. Don’t gloat too soon.

We’ll find out soon enough if Perisic has 38 matches per season in his legs, playing in a vastly more physical league than he has been, in his mid 30s. Good squad addition, we need depth and experience, but I’m not expecting him to be some kind of revelation. Bissouma is a great addition, will be interested to see if he plays alongside Bentancur and what our various CM pairings will be – Skippy might be 4th choice.

Exactly. Bissouma is class. The type of signing City or Liverpool usually pull off. I’m sure Paratici has offers out all over the place, buys and sells. Like Eriksen for example. We’re just waiting on him to decide. I’m as critical of Levy as anyone, but I don’t think he’s really involved much if at all now. Levy set the budget, Conte and the scouts choose the targets and Paratici has to get the deals over the line. At least I hope this is what’s happening.

It’s not quite Bisto yet, of course we need to sell and sign some more… But Perisic and Bissouma walk straight in to the first eleven.. Bissouma was the reason Brighton beat us last season. He’s like a slim Moussa Dembele.. I’m purring for now because these are two signings who would usually go to bigger club..
Expect players to come and go all the way up to deadline day. It’s impossible to get all signings done before pre season, many deals are reliant on what happens elsewhere.
If you really want to feel better then check out Arsenal and their business.. It’s like they’re feeding off scraps, I know a couple of fans and they’re praying Jesus will be their saviour. I’m not sure they’ll even get him.

You’re right of course.After the fanfare of the announcement that 150M would be available to Conte to spend,the rest has been rather underwhelming.Forster’s not a starter,but Perisic should be.And that’s it.

We know as well as Conte where improvements need to be made but some of the names we are being linked to is quite frankly a joke.We need to get down to some serious business and get the new recruits in to prepare for a proper pre-season so they are ready to hit the ground running.

Come on Levy get your finger out you must have Conte’s list.
