Admira Wacker striker Sasa Kalajdzic has reportedly emerged as a transfer target for Crystal Palace.
According to claims from The Daily Mail, the Eagles have identified the Austrian attacker as a possible signing this summer as they look to add more firepower to their ranks.
Michy Batshuayi and Jordan Ayew are only on loan at Selhurst Park, and with Christian Benteke having little over a year remaining on his contract at the club, other options appear to be under consideration.
Kalajdzic has been performing well in the Austrian Bundesliga and has found the back of the net on five occasions in his last five outings.
The 21-year-old has earned plaudits for his performances in his homeland throughout the season, and a summer tug of war over his signature looks set to ensue.
The Daily Mail reports that Red Bull Salzburg, Espanyol, Genk and Nice are all in the hunt to land Kalajdzic.
Meanwhile, in England, Palace are not the only club in the race to recruit the Austria Under-21 international. Rivals Brighton and Hove Albion are reportedly keen, while promotion hopefuls Leeds United are noted as potential suitors.
Other strikers who Palace could consider signing
Maupay has been excellent for Brentford this season and would add a youthful, exciting option to Palace’s squad.
Inglese has looked sharp for Parma on loan from Napoli. He doesn’t appear to have a future at the Stadio San Paolo, and Palace could be a good next destination.
Adams has been a talismanic figure for Birmingham City in the Championship. He’s ready for the step up to the Premier League, and Palace would be making an exciting signing if they were to pursue the striker.
Sturridge’s contract at Liverpool expires this summer, and he’d provide Palace with a Premier League-proven striker.
Mata is an experienced forward who has peaked late on in his career with Getafe. Having recently earned a Spain call-up, the striker would be a reliable player for Palace.
Austin will be offloaded by Southampton this summer as he is surplus to Ralph Hasenhuttl’s requirements. He’d be a solid impact substitute for Roy Hodgson.
