OPINION

The summer quest for a striker rumbles on.

need to sign at least one frontman before next season and Kalajdzic would tick plenty of boxes for the Hammers.

Young enough to adapt to the league, strong in the air and thus far in his fledgeling career – clinical in front of goal.

At around £20m he falls nicely into the Hammers likely budget on a striker also, this could be a potential deal to watch closely.
