Surely it's just pushing that he's just aware that there's a potential hit on him out there, and that he wanted to make it clear to Sekto that he'd seen the poster. The second part of the cut-scene pretty much locks that in, right? Basically: if he doesn't fix this new threat, he's a 20 grand target.
Edit: Actually, dipping into some early design docs, this might not be the case at all. In early drafts, it sounds like Stranger legitimately thinks he might be able to find one, or at least is offering up his own as bait, as the amount specified is intentionally close to the surgery cost. The phone call is longer too, with Stranger listing other heads he can get, including Scrabs (for $1,500).
