Stuttgart are considering a move for Manchester United striker Federico Macheda, according to their director of sport Fredi Bobic.

PAPER CHASE

Get the latest rumors as the biggest clubs try to bolster their rosters.

The Italian has failed to establish himself in the United first team squad after unsuccessful loan spells at Sampdoria and QPR.

Stuttgart are in the market for a striker and the 21-year-old fits the bill, just as long as the conditions for a transfer are right for the Bundesliga club.

"We have been watching him for a while now," Bobic told the Stuttgart Nachrichten newspaper.

"He is one of the players we have on our shortlist."

Stuttgart's 2-0 defeat to Wolfsburg at the weekend underlined their need for a striker with top scorer Vedad Ibisevic suspended and his replacement Shinji Okazaki failing to impress.

"We know how very important Vedo is for us, but we are not dependent on him," said Bobic.
