Stuttgart have today confirmed that Saša Kalajdžić (25) will not partake in training today and won’t be available for tomorrow’s Bundesliga game vs FC Köln.
VfB announced the situation via their social media channels: “At the request of the player and in consultation with head coach Pellegrino Matarazzo, Saša Kalajdžić is not taking part in today’s team training and is not in the squad for the Bundesliga game at FC Köln.”
This comes after Premier League side Wolves made an opening €15m bid for Kalajdžić, who has entered the final year of his contract. Stuttgart are open to selling the Austrian forward before the September 1 deadline, but value Kalajdžić at around €25m, including bonuses.
Kalajdžić has played in all three Bundesliga games for Stuttgart this season, creating three. Since his move from Admira Wacker in 2019 for €2m, the now 25-year-old has scored 24 and created 12 in 60 games across all competitions – 22 of those scored in 51 Bundesliga games.
