Nottingham Forest recently inquired about Wolves’ giant 6ft 7in striker Sasa Kalajdzic before he opted to join Eintracht Frankfurt on loan, as reported by the Daily Mail.

Now, what does this mean for Forest and their interest in Sasa Kalajdzic? Let’s delve deeper.

Nottingham Forest’s Interest in Sasa Kalajdzic
Seemingly, Forest is looking to secure another striker in the January transfer window. With Taiwo Awoniyi sidelined due to injury, the reliance on 32-year-old Chris Wood for every game isn’t an ideal scenario.

According to the Daily Mail, both Forest and Fulham expressed interest in the Austrian forward, but he has now sealed a move to Frankfurt until the end of the season. Notably, there’s no buy option in the deal, and reports suggest the 26-year-old desires to remain in the Premier League post this season.

Regarding Kalajdzic’s stint with Wolves this season, game time has been limited under Gary O’Neil, with just one goal scored in 11 appearances. He’s in dire need of regular playing time.

There have been reports linking a former Forest player, previously on an £80,000-a-week wage, offering himself to Barcelona. Furthermore, interest from Leeds United in a 22-year-old Forest player has emerged, but the player’s value is acknowledged by Nuno.

Dave Edwards, a strong admirer of Kalajdzic, lauded him as ‘excellent’ back in September while discussing his potential starting role.

Getting to Know Sasa Kalajdzic
Kalajdzic is an imposing figure towering at an impressive 6ft 7in! Forest aimed to acquire this player, who moved from Stuttgart to Wolves in 2022, to strengthen Nuno Espirito Santo’s attacking options.

During his Bundesliga spell, he tallied 24 goals and 12 assists in 60 appearances. WhoScored highlights his strengths as finishing, aerial duels, and heading abilities.

However, his tenure at Wolves was marred by a severe knee ligament injury during his debut, hindering his performance. Although he’s made a comeback, his output has been modest, scoring three goals in 14 appearances, necessitating a consistent run of games.

Kalajdzic appears to feel he has unfinished business in the Premier League, which raises curiosity about a potential Forest return pursuit in the upcoming summer transfer window.
