The 27-year-old Norway international has already discussed terms with the Swabians, and Kind accepts the player has his heart set on a move.
"Stuttgart may as well start counting on having Abdellaoue," he said.
"We know that he wants to go to Stuttgart and we want to fulfil his wish too.
"He can rely on (Stuttgart director of sport) Fredi Bobic for that."
All the two clubs need to do is agree a fee for the forward, who has scored 29 goals in 80 Bundesliga appearances since joining from Valerenga in 2010. And Kind does not foresee that being a problem.
"I'm going to call Stuttgart imminently - by next week at the latest," he said to the Stuttgarter Zeitung newspaper.
"This is not a Turkish bazaar and we are not going to be wrangling over the fee."
